Safa explains coaches' extra activities


The former Orlando Pirates assistant coach has recently been heading the coaching duties at ambitious Vodacom League side Mafube United as they prepare for the national play-offs.

Kenneth ‘Conti’ Kubeka, the Safa coaching director gave a detailed explanation about Moloi’s relationship with the mother body.

“Moloi is not a full-time employee of Safa,” reveals Kubeka.

“In fact, all coaches from Under-17 going downwards are not full-time at Safa. Moloi only works on a project basis even though he still has to visit development academies and assess what is going on there. As a national team coach it is within his rights to also give advice to other coaches involved at that level.

“This is all stated in his job description. If Moloi decides to also take up another coaching role at a club it is within his rights to do so as he is not breaching his contract. Even with the women national team, there is no full-time coach for the Under-17 team,” says Kubeka.

While Moloi tries to help Mafube get into the First Division via the national play-offs, the task of getting Amajimbos to qualify to the 2009 African Under-17 Championships in Algeria awaits him.

After receiving a bye in the preliminary round Amajimbos face Malawi in September in the first round and if they win that qualifier they will then meet either Zambia or Namibia in the last qualifying round of matches.
