During Saturday's National Executive Committee meeting it was decided that former national team players Lucas Radebe and David Nyathi are now part of SAFA's technical committee.

The Association also announced that Baloyi and Fabian McCarthy will work on SAFA's marketing, media and commercial committee.

'Spiderman' says he read about the new developments in the papers.

"Angiyazi lento nami ngiyibon'ephepheni weekend [I don't know anything about this I only saw in the newspaper on the weekend]," Baloyi tells snl24.com/kickoff.

"Ask the person who wrote it where did he get that, you can even call Fabian he will tell you. I don't know. I just saw it in the paper, that's all. I haven't spoken to anyone... I don't know."

Asked about Baloyi's claims, SAFA acting CEO Tebogo Motlanthe says the players have always been part of the Association.

"Yes, yes, but Brian Baloyi, Lucas Radebe and others they've always been there in our committees. Lucas Radebe, Buddha Mathate... they are in the technical committees," he explains.

"Brian Baloyi and Fabian McCarthy they are in our commercial, marketing and communications committee. He [Baloyi] will get the letter confirming that.

"Just former players, we need them to be involved. You can see all our women national teams they are coached by former Banyana players. And in Africa, I'm sure we are the only country, even our senior national team is coached by a woman."
