Bafana Bafana assistant coach tested positive for Covid-19

Bafana Bafana’s friendly against Uganda has been thrown into doubt after assistant coach Janevski Cedomir tested positive for Covid-19.

The national team underwent second Covid-19 tests on Tuesday as per therequirements and protocol which the Macedonian tested positive ahead of Thursday’s showdown.

While SAFA has confirmed the rest of the squad has tested negative, the guidelines state that anyone who has come into contact with someone who’s tested positive need to isolate for at least 10 days.

“We continue to check for clinical symptoms and encourage the staff to wear masks without failure, practice social distance and everyone is accommodated separately,” team doctor Dr Tshepo Molobi

Local assistant Helman Mkhalele will be the only coach available on matchday with head coach Hugo Broos still in Belgium to receive his second Covid-19 vaccination.

It remains to be seen whether the game scheduled to take place on Thursday afternoon at Orlando Stadium will still take place as there’s been no indication that it will be called off.
