South African national team manager Molefi Ntseki has been sacked after the Bafana Bafana failed to reach the 2021 AFCON.
The 51-year-old took charge of South Africa in August 2019, leading the national team in nine games, winning just four, while suffering three defeats.
Their most recent one came in a crucial game against Sudan as a 2-0 home victory for the Falcons of Jediane meant that the Bafana Bafana will miss the upcoming AFCON finals in Cameroon.
The 1996 AFCON champions started the qualifiers well, picking up nine points from the opening four games, before being held by Ghana at home and then lose in Sudan.
A couple of days after the defeat, the SAFA have announced that Molefi Ntseki has been sacked after he refused to resign from his position.
Al Ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane has emerged as one of the candidates to replace Ntseki alongside Benni McCarthy, Shakes Mashaba, Carlos Queiroz and Muhsin Ertugral.
However, Mosimane has not shown any intentions of leaving the Reds and returning to South Africa currently.
Mosimane had taken charge of South Africa between 2010 to 2012, before departing to create a legacy with Mamelodi Sundowns and then Al Ahly.
