Parreira to get work permit 2/12/2007
South Africa''''''''s new coach, Carlos Alberto Parreira, has been told that he will be getting his work permit in the next 24 hours.
The World Cup-winning Brazilian had been warned that he faced arrest if he had done any more work, even take notes off the television.

"We have been working closely with the South African Football Association (Safa) to speed up the work permit for Carlos Alberto and his assistant (fellow Brazilian Jairo Leal)," Mantshele Tau, spokesman for the South African Department of Home Affairs told BBC Sport.

"We have taken this decision in the best interest of the preparations for the 2010 World Cup.

"We are going to penalise Safa for their convention of the Immigration Act because they have allowed the coach and his assistant to work without a work permit.

"We haven''''''''t decided exactly how much yet, but it is likely to be in the region of 20,000 Rand (US$2,750).

Parreira has already held a three-day training camp in Johannesburg last week with a 23-man squad and has also attended a number of local games to identify potential Bafana Bafana players.

Safa has admitted that it was tardy in beginning the process of applying for employment visas for Parreira and Leal, who entered South Africa as tourists, and are awaiting police and medical documents for the pair.
