Bafana Bafana legend Lucas Radebe opens up about potentially coaching in the PSL

Posted: 18 November 2017 Time: 18:00

South African legend Lucas Radebe has explained what conditions would tempt him to consider coaching in the PSL.

Since retiring in 2005, the ex-national team and Leeds United captain has held various ambassadorial and technical roles, most recently forming part of a SAFA committee that was involved in appointing Stuart Baxter as Shakes Mashaba's successor.

A number of Radebe's former Bafana Bafana teammates now find themselves in the dugout, such as SuperSport United's Eric Tinkler, Cape Town City's Benni McCarthy and University of Pretoria's Shaun Bartlett to name a few, while Doctor Khumalo and Neil Tovey are technical directors at Baroka and SAFA respectively.

However, 'Rhoo', who has been touted as a future SAFA president, is hesitant to follow suit at this stage.

"You know I always say that it's great to be a coach and I'm telling you I'd like to coach one day," said the 48-year-old.

"But I don't think coaching is my thing. For me the structure is one of the best things. You can have the best coach in the world and be coaching the national team, but if the structure is not right you won't get anything.

"So until something is visible out there and you see a structure, then that will tempt me. Because I'll know where I'm going, where I'm heading and who I'm working with and exactly what's my goal."
