- Lamontville Golden Arrows Steve Komphela is being talked about as a potential interim coach for Bafana Bafana
- This follows coach Stuart Baxter's resignation
- Other possible replacements include Gavin Hunt of Bidvest Wits and Cape Town City boss Benni McCarthy
Steve Komphela has been touted as a possible replacement for Stuart Baxter, who announced his resignation as Bafana coach today.
Bafana also has a number of important games coming back, meaning that they will need an acting coach in the interim.
Komphela has helped out in this capacity before, so many have suggested he may so again.
The SA Football Association (Safa) Technical Committee has reportedly thrown their support behind Komphela, who is currently the coach for Lamontville Golden Arrows, Briefly.co.za has gathered.
Jack Maluleka, a member of the Committee, described Komphela as "one of my favourite coaches in the country", according to Sowetan Live.
However, Komphela's is not the only name that has been suggested. Several analysts (and a considerable number of fans on social media) have floated Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt and Cape Town City head Benni McCarthy.
On a more serious note, Maluleka said that the national team could not be left alone for the time being. He said that SAFA would make a decision on Saturday as to whether they should retain assistant-coach Molefi Ntseki as caretaker coach, or if they should find someone else to fill the role.
He added that the technical committee would make a recommendation, which would then be decided by the national executive committee.
