The 1996 champions finished third in the group behind Ghana and Sudan. Sao Tome ePrincipe finished at the bottom of the group with no point from the six qualifiers.

“Those decisions came in around 10H00 in the morning. Part of our duty as administrators are to go sit down with the coach and his representatives and pave a clear way forward.

“There has not been any formal communication with the coach – that I can assure you.”

Jack Malulele, who is the chairperson of the technical committee said they will sit down and pave a way forward on who must take over as the new head coach of the national team.

After the technical meeting they will make recommendations to the National Executive Committee on who must lead South Africa to the Fifa World Cup qualifiers set to begin in June.
