Edgah Mitemah, who is currently handling Pablo Franco Martin's affairs in Africa has confirmed contact with two teams hailing from South Africa but declined to reveal their identities.

"We saw the reports in South Africa (linking Martin to Orlando Pirates), but we wouldn't want to confirm the teams that we are talking to," Mitemah reveals to KickOff.

"At the moment, nothing is concrete. The coach is currently in Spain enjoying the off-season before preparing for his next move.

KickOff understands that Marumo Gallants are rumoured to have also enquired about the availability of Pablo Franco Martin before appointing Moroccon Romain Folz as their new head coach.
