Legendary Bafana Bafana defender Aaron Mokoena decided to take the route of an administrator than that of a coach as many of his former teammates such as Benni McCarthy and Bradley Carnell have done.
“There are different roles that former players can play, and I have decided to take this path of being the link between the technical team and the association. Remember when I was the captain, I was the link between the players and the technical team, and now this is a step forward for me,” Mokoena told City Press .
The 36-year-old is delighted to be under the wing of Barney Kujane, who has been with the association through thick and thin.
“Bra Barney has been around and knows what he is doing, but he was frank with me, saying this is like an introductory course for me as there is a lot to do in this field,” Mokoena said.
“I think I will learn a lot from his experience and knowledge because he has been around the block,” Mokoena added.
The South African Football Association (Safa) has taken a new leaf of appointing former players in various positions, with Helman Mkhalele, Quinton Fortune and Andre Arendse handed various roles across all national teams.
