After the African Nations Cup debacle, Shakes seems to have no choice but to bring back Bafana's brash foreign-based players.
Safa president Danny Jordaan's seeking of greater representation for African countries in future World Cups have been effectively stifled.
Meet the most dispensable person in SA, Bafana Bafana's coach. But perhaps it's Safa that should be substituted.
Fifa's president Sepp Blatter and Safa head Danny Jordaan have joined the world in mourning the passing of football great Eusebio.
South African Football Association referee Clifford Malgas, accused of match fixing, has been granted R5 000 bail by the Cape Town District Court.
Danny Jordaan was elected as the Safa president at the organisation's elective congress at Helderfontein Estate in Midrand on Saturday.
The sports ministry and Safa are keeping mum on a possible international soccer and rugby double header at FNB Stadium in August.
South Africa has not made the most of hosting the 2010 Fifa World Cup to develop world-class soccer players, says Cosatu leader Zwelinzima Vavi.
Football bosses have claimed that the media and those who leak information about Safa's poor governance are damaging the country's reputation.
The South African Football Association (Safa) made a loss of R54.4-million for the year to June 2012.
The sports ministry has stated that they are “disappointed and taken aback” that a recent letter to them by Fifa was leaked to the media.
The SA Football Association has suspended match officials implicated in the Phil Setshedi match fixing scandal, it said on Saturday.
Affidavits reveal how taxpayers helped to settle Safa's debt for the upgrading of Soccer city in preparation for the 2010 soccer World Cup.
Safa is not hiding from the public in the wake of a match-fixing scandal, according to the soccer body's spokesperson, Dominic Chimhavi.
A Fifa investigation has uncovered a criminal web of match-fixing syndicates that operated in SA during pre-World Cup 2010 friendly matches.
Safa has appointed Robin Petersen as CEO of the body's new development arm, aimed at lifting the quality of the sport in South Africa.
The culture of entitlement and big money needs to change if Bafana is to escape the hole dug by the football bosses, writes Carlos Amato.
