Westerhof settles SA row
Clemens Westerhof
Westerhof now runs a youth academy in Zimbabwe
The South African Football Association (Safa) has settled its legal dispute with Dutchman Clemens Westerhof.

The former Nigeria coach sued the association over an alleged breach of contract in 2000.

Westerhof - who managed the Super Eagles to victory at the 1994 African Nations Cup, claimed he had a written agreement to manage the South African national team.

But Carlos Queiroz, now an assistant coach with English Premiership club Manchester United, was eventually picked for the post.

Westerhof subsequently had a stint in South African club management with Sundowns FC.

No details of his settlement with Safa have been released but officials said it is less than the one million Rand ($101,600) suggested by the local media.

The deal with Westerhof is said to have been thrashed out two weeks ago.

The coach is now based in Zimbabwe where he runs a youth academy.
