"But I'm coming back home to concentrate on my businesses. Ja, my contract is finished. I had a five-year contract, so when we wanted to renew it we couldn't agree.

"Ja, we couldn't agree on terms, but I was more around going back home. I've done my job. I need to get back home now. I've done my five years and it's been a very successful time for SAFA, I'm happy.

"I'm never satisfied. I'm never that type of person who is satisfied but you just have to look at the history in the last three years how successful SAFA has been and you will see.

"I was there to assist technically all the national teams, assist on the coaching induction programmes, assist on youth football, women's football, all the different divisions.
