The South African Football Association (Safa) have confirmed that they have officially agreed to part ways amicably with coach Molefi Ntseki.
Although Safa had made the announcement of Ntseki sacking following Bafana Bafana’s failure to qualify for the 2022 Afcon, it is alleged that Ntseki was never officially informed of the decision and only learnt from the media.
It was widely reported that Ntseki had vowed to challenge the decision to fire him and was subsequently offered a job as a Technical Director at Safa.
But the local football governing body on Thursday announced that they have now finally reached an agreement to go their separate ways with the 53-year-old.
“The South African Football Association (Safa) together with coach Molefi Ntseki have officially agreed to part ways amicably, following the senior national team’s failure to qualify for the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon),” read a statement from Safa.
Under Ntseki, Bafana Bafana won four, drew two and lost three of the nine international matches played.
