Shakes To Fight Suspension 10/01/04
There could be more trouble ahead for the South African Football Association (Safa) as national coach Shakes Mashaba has confirmed he will be seeking legal advice over his seven day suspension announced this week.

Mashaba was removed for the 2-0 defeat at the hands of Mauritius on Saturday after it was alleged he had breached his contract with the sport's governing body in South Africa.

But a statement on Saturday from the former Amaglug-glug coach said he would fight the decision all the way.

"A notice of suspension alleging that I had breached my agreement with Safa, without detailing the facts of my alleged breach, was sent to my house on the evening of 7th January 2004.

"This necessitated my seeking legal advice about my suspension and the unfair manner in which I have been treated by Safa. I have been in consultation with my legal team and court proceedings have been set in motion to challenge the fairness of my suspension.

"I have received tremendous support from all corners of South Africa for which I am grateful. The outcome of the court case challenging my suspension will be known in a few days time."

The decision to suspend Mashaba has come just days before Bafana Bafana embark for Tunisia and the African Cup of Nations, which begins on January 24. South Africa's opening match is three days later against Benin.
