South Africa Football Association has postponed the naming of new Bafana Bafana coach until next week, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
This was confirmed on Bafana Bafana's verified Twitter handle on Friday morning.
SAFA were expected to announce the new coach on Friday, but want the newly appointed coach present at the press conference.
"The naming of new @BafanaBafana coach has been postponed to next week as we need the coach available at the Press Conference!," SAFA stated on the Bafana handle.
SAFA has been in the hunt for a new coach since the sacking of Shakes Mashaba.
Among the names considered for the Bafana coaching job were Cameroon's 2017 Africa Cup of Nations winning coach Hugo Broos, former England boss Roy Hodgson, Morocco's coach Herve Renard and former Bafana handlers Carlos Queiroz and Stuart Baxter.
Bafana will commence qualifiers for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations against the Super Eagles of Nigeria in June.
