IN TROUBLE: Shakes Mashaba
Shakes Mashaba has a lot of explaining to do this weekend at a Safa technical meeting after Bafana Bafana failed to qualify for Afcon 2017.

Bafana were looking to sneak into Gabon as one of the two best runners up. But that won’t happen even if they win their last game to finish with nine points because there are already three second-placed nations on 10 points.

Safa CEO Dennis Mumble vows to get to the root of the problem.

Mumble says: “He needs to explain to us, this weekend in the technical committee meeting, what he meant when he said that we were not properly prepared.”

Mumble further squashed rumours that the organisation was looking at Gavin Hunt as the next Bafana Bafana coach.
