South Africa are in talks with experienced Portuguese coach Carlos Queiroz to take over as head coach of their national team.
The Bafana Bafana sacked Molefi Ntseki last week following the team’s failure to book an AFCON ticket and they now want to give the job the 68-year-old Portuguese coach as they seek to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Sportsworldghana.com understands that talks between the two parties has gotten to an advanced and it is likely Queiroz will accept the job offer to coach the Rainbow nation.
Queiroz handled South Africa from 2000 to 2002 but resigned from his post with just two months to the World Cup in Japan and South Korea after disagreement with the country’s football association.
The veteran trainer has previously also coached Manchester United, Real Madrid, Colombia and Iran national teams.
