The South African Football Association (SAFA) is looking for a new coach after axing Shakes Mashaba on Thursday.
Mashaba was suspended in November after a verbal spat with SAFA president, Danny Jordaan, after beating Senegal 2-1 for a World Cup qualifier game in Polokwane.
702's Bruce Whitfield spoke to former Bafana Bafana striker, Mark Williams, regarding his performance over the years.

Bafana Bafana's performance has been poor over the years, failing to qualify for international tournaments such as the World Cup.
The victory against Senegal brought hope for the national team returning to its former glory.
The mandate that they gave him was that they had to qualify for AFCON Cup and he didn't qualify.— Mark Williams, former Bafana Bafana striker
Mashaba came under fire for his team selection many times but he insisted that his strategy would yield results.
Reports of hostile treatment of players often surfaced, which was allegedly targeted at international club level players.
It's not a difficult job to have because we have a lot of talent here in South Africa.— Mark Williams, former Bafana Bafana striker
