Stephen Keshi has said that he will take up the opportunity of working in the South African top-flight, the Premier Soccer League.
The Nigerian legend explained that if the terms and conditions from any offer suits his choice, he will take up such deal.
The 54-year-old further disclosed that he is leaving his door open for other options as well apart from working in the South African top division, the Absa Premier League.
“As a professional I am ready to take up an offer provided the terms are okay by me,” Keshi said.
“An opportunity to work in South Africa (in the Absa Premier League) is one that interests me, but like I said, I’m a professional and I am open to opportunities with the terms that will suit what I want.
“Right now I am not in a hurry to jump on any offer. I will take my time and make a decision about my future.”
The former Nigeria head coach recently signed up with a South African football agency headed by Tim Sukazi and that has fuelled speculations about his future destination being the Rainbow Nation.
Sukazi’s comments in the South African media earlier this month has also stoked the embers of the reports linking Keshi to a move to the Absa Premier League.
“I think Stephen Keshi’s arrival in South Africa will enhance the level of our game and this will give good exposure to our football. We are working very hard to find him a club and have mooted to club bosses his availability, but things are a bit slow, as expected, because the season is only wrapping up this month with one league game to go and we still don’t know who will be relegated,” Sukazi was quoted as saying earlier in May.
Keshi won the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations with Nigeria and has also managed Mali and Togo, a small West African country, he guided to the Fifa World Cup in 2006.
