Jordaan: Queiroz reports premature
The Safa boss says the body has not spoken to Carlos Queiroz about taking over as Bafana coach.
CAPE TOWN - South African Football Association (Safa) President Danny Jordaan on Monday said the football governing body has not spoken to Carlos Queiroz about taking over as Bafana Bafana coach.
Jordaan says reports suggesting Queiroz is set to replace Gordon Igesund as national coach are premature.
He says Safa is yet to meet with Igesund to discuss Bafana's early exit from the 2014 African Nations Championship.
According to Jordaan, Igesund remains the coach of the national team.
"Carlos Queiroz was here supporting Mozambique, because he's Mozambican. We have not discussed any job offer with him and he is focused on his team."
Jordaan says Safa will meet with Igesund in the coming days.
"We made it clear that we have not received any report or discussed the matter yet. We are going to meet with Igesund, he is going to come here and engage with us. That has not happened yet."
Jordaan says Safa wants to make long-term plans for the team.
"This obviously is not based on the match against Brazil. That match will come and go and we'll have to use existing players to play in that match. Any strategic decisions we make will be for the long-term."
