No Need To Replace Tovey Right Now - Motlanthe

Following the expiration of Neil Tovey's contract as Technical Director last week, the South African Football Association (Safa) says it is no hurry to replace the former Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana star.


The former Bafana Bafana skipper saw his contract coming to an end last month and the football governing body’s CEO Tebogo Motlanthe says they have started the process of identifying the legend’s successor.


“As the CEO, I’m working on that position to be filled,” said Motlanthe as quoted by the DailySun.


“Once we are fine, we’ll make an announcement. Sadly we can’t rush now because we don’t have any activities internationally.


“If I appoint someone now, I’ll appoint that person and do what? To come and be in the office? It will not make sense. But it is a process and we have started it.”
