Bafana Bafana coach Molefi Ntseki has finally signed a new and improved contract with the South African Football Association (Safa) after spending the last few months on his terms as an assistant coach.
The 50-year-old replaced Stuart Baxter three months ago but with rumours swirling that the former assistant to Baxter was the cheapest option. Despite swatting away the claims, Ntseki has spent his time as Bafana head coach still on his assistant coach contract.
Ntseki’s agent, though, confirmed to SowetanLIVE on Wednesday that the coach and the association have eventually come to an agreement and Ntseki has signed a new and improved contract.
‘We are fine. Both parties are happy‚’ Matuka said.

‘We actually sealed it yesterday [Tuesday]. We had pretty much agreed on a deal on Thursday‚ but there was just one outstanding matter that both parties had to go back and investigate‚ consult and come back on. That has been resolved,’ he said.
The contract duration is still unconfirmed, but it is thought that the coach will be in charge until at least the end of the 2022 Fifa World Cup.
