Former treble winning coach at Orlando Pirates Rudd Krol has revealed that he would be open to a return to South African football even if its with former rivals Kaizer Chiefs or Mamleodi Sundowns.
The Dutch coach enjoyed a highly successful period at Pirates and after a few years away from the PSL he has revealed that he is open to a return even if its to Chiefs or Sundowns.
“Ya,” Krol told KickOff.com when asked if he would be open to coaching the Glamour Boys.
“I always have this belief and I love Africa. You know I’ve had a very nice time in Africa, I’ve never had a problem with the people or anyone.
“Of course, I defend my philosophy, that is for sure and I don’t like interference in my management. I am the coach and the president is the president and the manager is the manager but it’s only one technical staff and let people work like they want to work.”
“If you take me as a coach, you know I have a strategy that I want to play football. I want to take initiative, I want [my team] to play with the ball. That you must know. If you don’t want to have that kind of football, then don’t contact me.
“If you want to take me as a coach to play kick-and-rush football then you must not take me. I love football and I protect always my teams that they should play football. Everywhere I’ve had the success it’s been the same [philosophy].
“Not everywhere [did] I win the championship but my style, whether it be at Chiefs, Sundowns, Pirates, you will see that, and that’s the most important thing.
“To win something, that takes years because you have to see every year, every season or every six months. Because before you maybe have two periods of transfers where you can change and that you can use to reinforce weaknesses in your team,” he concluded.
