Walter Steenbok has always been the frontrunner for the vacant position at SAFA, and his departure from Chiefs fueled the speculation.

Now, according to Motlanthe what’s left is for him to meet Steenbok and discuss the terms of his contract, and as soon as they agree, then the 48-year-old will be appointed.
Steenbok will take over from former Chiefs and Bafana Bafana captain Neil Tovey whose five-year term as the Technical Director came to an end two years ago.

“The technical committee has made a recommendation to the NEC and provisionally Walter Steenbok has been approved by the NEC to be the new technical director,” said Motlanthe.
“I’m saying provisionally because I must still meet with the incumbent, agree and after we have agreed we will finalise,” he explained.
