The South African Football Association (SAFA) is set for a legal battle with Ephraim Mashaba, following a decision to dismiss him from his position as South Africa head coach.
Mashaba, 66, was relieved of his duties as the coach of Bafana Bafana in December. SAFA announced that he was found guilty of gross misconduct by a disciplinary committee.
The coach’s representatives have since taken the legal route following his dismissal. Mashaba was left with 18 months to run on his contract, in what was his fourth stint in charge of the national team.
The latest news coming out of Mashaba’s camp is that the coach’s legal team is considering launching an urgent court proceeding to prevent SAFA from appointing a new coach for the national team, up until their case has been presented to the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA).
“We are considering launching urgent court proceedings to prevent SAFA from appointing a new coach. We have finalised the papers for the CCMA and will submit this week,” stated Mashaba’s legal representative, Claudio Bollo, of BBM Law.
