Former Super Eagles coach, Samsom Yebowei Siasia has applied to coach the Bafana Bafana of South Africa ahead of the 2018 World Cup and 2019 AFCON qualifiers and has submitted his CV at the South Africa Football Association (SAFA) headquaters
According to reports, Siasia who has been out of job since he led Nigeria to win the 2016 Rio Olympics men’s football Bronze medal is among the numerous coaches to have submitted applications to land one of the African football’s most lucrative jobs.
Besides, he is keen on taking a job outside the shores of Nigeria after the late Stephen Okechukwu Keshi advised him to step out and prove his worth elsewhere if he really wants to earn respect back home.
The former striker also applied for the vacant Orlando Pirates coaching job, as confirmed by football agent, Nico Mbonani.
Mbonani confirmed that Siasia’s CV has been sent to SAFA. The agent also confirmed that Siasia’s CV was forwarded to Orlando Pirates as well, with the Buccaneers still under the tutelage of Augusto Palacios on interim basis.
The club is believed to be working on finding substantive coach to fill the position left by Muhsin Ertugral, who resigned in November last year.
