Molefi Ntseki is the latest coach to be appointed to lead Bafana Bafana after the SA Football Association’s National Executive Committee (NEC) voted unanimously for him to take over from Stuart Baxter.
But who is the latest coach to take over the toughest job in South African football? Ntseki started out a school teacher before the coaching bug hit him and he followed his passion.
Speaking on his journey from grassroots coach to Bafana Bafana mentor, Nteski told safa.net: “If you are at school, you graduate from a lower level to the next and I think I have sufficiently served my apprenticeship for this demanding job and it is about time I graduate to the next level.
“I qualified for the Fifa World Cup with the under 17 in Chile and several other achievements and I don’t believe taking this job would be tantamount to being thrown into the deep end. Without sounding arrogant, I think I am ready for this.”
