The South African football Association (Safa) have suffered a big set back in their quest to find a new coach who can bring back the lost pride to Bafana Bafana.
One of the five people who was appointed by Safa to lead the search for the next national coach, Danny Jordaan, has ruled himself out of the selection committee.
The World Cup bid boss has said he simply does not have the time to dedicate to the committee.
"I have a strenuous programme (regarding the bid) until May 14," he told the Johannesburg Press Club.
Safa was hoping that Jordaan would added some credibility to the group that was tasked to look for the new coach.
"I can give assistance, but to be there, I don't think I can," said the football administrator who is busy trying to bring the World Cup to South African in 2010.
The other members of the committee that were appointed to appoint a new coach are Veli Mahlangu, Marcus Salop, Terry Paine and Albert Mokoena, the current Chief Executive Officer of Safa.
