Jomo Sono
Jomo Sono
Position:Coach

Jomo Sono has had less time than most to prepare his side for the World Cup - he only succeeded Carlos Queiroz in March.

One of the finest South African players ever, Sono was first installed as director of football following Bafana Bafana's dismal African Nations Cup showing under Queiroz.

Queiroz was angered by the appointment and, beginning to feel his position was being undermined, stood down.

Known as the "Black Prince of South African Soccer", Sono was a popular player at Orlando Pirates and was a team-mate of Pele's at New York Cosmos.

In 1982, he bought the franchise to Highlands Park - a club in Johannesburg.

He renamed them Jomo Cosmos and became their manager in 1994 before winning the League Cup final with them last November.

Sono is the longest-serving coach in the Premier League and sits on the Premier Soccer League board.
