Four-time Absa Premiership-winning coach Gordon Igesund is open to the idea and willing to start coaching in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) again.
The 63-year-old has been without a coaching job since he parted ways with Highlands Parks in April 2017, but has since dedicated his time to growing his football academy in Cape Town.
Igesund, alongside the likes of Pitso Mosimane, Ted Dumitru and Gavin Hunt, is one of the most decorated South African coaches. He has four PSL league titles – with Manning Rangers (1996-97), Orlando Pirates (2000-01), Santos (2001-02) and Mamelodi Sundowns (2006-07).
‘People think I have retired, but I haven’t. I have been working hard on my academy for the past 18 months. We’ve got 300 boys whom we feed 200 meals a month,’ Igesund told Daily Sun.
‘We are schooling them. It is a proper, proper academy and it is what I’m doing.
‘But at the same time, I have been keeping myself abreast of what is happening in the PSL, and also new coaching methods in the world,’ he said.
‘We’ll see if something comes up. But my academy is up and running now. My academy has been huge, huge investments. We do all the testing of players, high-performance centre.
‘But we’ll see what happens if something comes up in the PSL.’
