Having been in the background for most of his career, Molefi Ntseki admitted that it’s his greatest achievement to be named Bafana Bafana coach.
JOHANNESBURG - Molefi Ntseki said it was an honour to be appointed Bafana Bafana coach.

Having been in the background for most of his career, Ntseki admitted that it’s his greatest achievement to be named Bafana coach.
“I’m very happy to get the green jersey. We all know and understand what green means, it projects a very positive future, I’m very happy that I got a green one today and the future looks very green.”
The South African Football Association (Safa) said the former assistant coach to both Baxter and Shakes Mashaba was a good fit for the job because he has already been part of the coaching set up and knew the association's vision of the future.
