New twist as Safa denies Ntseki appointment as Broos’ Bafana Bafana assistant coach

The local football governing body has provided a new twist concerning the composition of the national team’s technical bench

Safa has poured cold water on reports Molefi Ntseki is returning to the national team set-up as assistant coach to Hugo Broos. 

After Broos was quoted as having told SAfmRadio that he is roping in Ntseki to be his second assistant coach, the local football mother body moved in to add a new twist to the development. 

It had been widely-speculated that Ntseki was coming back to the national team fold, nearly two months after he was fired as Bafana head coach. 

“Contrary to widespread news, Safa would like to clarify to all football fans that the association has not appointed any local assistant coach for Bafana Bafana,” Safa said in a statement. 

“The name making headlines is not the association’s position. The Safa NEC [national executive committee] will appoint a local assistant coach soon.”
