Banyana Banyana star Nthabiseng “Moemish” Matshaba claims coach Augustine Makalakalane, a former Bafana legend, repeatedly harassed her sexually and then dropped her from the squad when she refused to give in to his demands.
The SA Football Association has launched an investigation.
“The coach asked me on numerous occasions to have sex with him and each time I declined. When I said no he got angry and he fired me,” said Matshaba.
“He tried to fondle me also but I never allowed him too.”
Matshaba, who was forced to leave the squad just before the 7th African Women Championship finals three weeks ago, said she had been “heart-broken” after she was left out of the squad, but will refuse to play under Makalakalane, 46.
