Parreira Could Return as South Africa Coach

Carlos Alberto Parreira, who resigned last year as coach of South Africa, says he has agreed to return to coach the team. Parreira said he met Thursday in Brazil with the president of the South African soccer federation, Kirsten Nematandani, to discuss the terms of the agreement. "This has to have the approval of the federation's executive committee," Parreria said on the Web site of Rio de Janeiro's O Globo newspaper. "The president came to Brazil himself, so this shows a serious attitude. It shows they want to sign me."

Parreira reportedly gave a list of demands that include the timing and location of the team's training camps. "We had a frank conversation," Parreira said. "I put forward my plans so there will be no surprises later. Now I'll wait to hear more. Maybe Friday or Saturday."

South Africa fired Brazilian coach Joel Santana on Monday after a series of losses in the buildup to hosting next year's World Cup. Parreira led his native Brazil to the 1994 World Cup title but resigned as South Africa coach last year to be with his ill wife.
