South African football legends Lucas Radebe and Benedict 'Benni' McCarthy have been included in the committee that is urgently looking for the new senior national team coach.
The committee was set up by the South African Football Association (SAFA) and it comprises of 10 members including former Bafana Bafana coach Clive Barker, who won the 1996 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) title.
The position became vacant after Ephraim 'Shakes' Mashaba was dismissed by SAFA two months ago after he was found guilty of professional misconduct, gross insubordination and violating the organisation's communication policy.
"We want to have the process expedited as Bafana Bafana have a bumper 2017 season in which they need to compete and qualify on three fronts – namely CHAN, AFCON and the FIFA World Cup in Russia2018," said SAFA President Dr Danny Jordaan.
