AS Vita head coach Florent Ibenge has broken silence over the recent speculation linking him with a move to Kaizer Chiefs.
Ibenge, 57, announced his resignation from the Democratic Republic of Congo national team on Wednesday after five years doubling up as an international and club manager.
During his spell, he restored the fear back into the two-time African champions with an enterprising style of football, earning plaudits from around the continent.
Reports have linked the experienced tactician to South Africa, with the Soweto giants mooted as a possible destination amid the uncertainty surrounding the long-term future of Ernst Middendorp.
But Ibenge has since taken a clear stance on the rumours, indicating he requires a break from football, after a relentless period of work that saw him without a break since late 2014.
