Bafana Bafana assistant coach Janevski Cedomir has tested positive for Covid-19, raising doubt over whether the side’s friendly against Uganda on Thursday will go ahead.
The entire Bafana set-up underwent a second round of Covid-19 tests on Tuesday as per requirements and protocol and the Macedonian tested positive ahead of Thursday’s showdown.
Although Safa has confirmed that the rest of the squad have tested negative, the guidelines state that anyone who has come into contact with someone who’s tested positive need to isolate for at least 10 days.
‘We continue to check for clinical symptoms and encourage the staff to wear masks without failure, practice social distance and everyone is accommodated separately,’ team doctor Tshepo Molobi said.
Local assistant Helman Mkhalele will be the only coach available on match day, with head coach Hugo Broos still in Belgium to receive his second Covid-19 vaccination.
It remains to be seen whether the game scheduled to take place on Thursday afternoon at the Orlando Stadium will still take place as there has been no indication that it will be called off.
