Some coaches tend to remain in the country of their birth their whole careers, and some tend to only follow the big clubs, while others like to test their abilities with teams all around the world.
Today, I take a look at some coaches that could be interesting to watch in South Africa should they take up a role on one of Mzansi’s benches.
The slick Frenchman is one of the most successful coaches with African teams, having become the first coach to win the Africa Cup of Nations with two different countries (Zambia and Ivory Coast). His knowledge of the game will surely help better the game in South Africa, but he will come at a hefty price.
Currently the head coach of Ghana, Avram Grant got his first dose of African football when he led the Black Stars to the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations final. If his time comes to an end with Ghana, a big club in South Africa should definitely try go after his services.
The 1998 World Cup winner with France recently completed his UEFA coaching course and is said to be on the lookout for a job. Desailly has openly admitted that he would be keen to try his luck coaching in Africa, and who knows, South Africa may be on his list.
The former Milan manager is currently without a job after he was controversially released of his duties on the Rossoneri bench. That was his first ever stint as a manager, and he will be aiming to find a new club once he completes his coaching course. Seedorf was once rumoured to join Ajax Cape Town, maybe he could still be tempted with a move to Mzansi?
The former Nigerian coach is reportedly close to joining Burkina Faso as their head coach, just a year after he was heavily linked with becoming the Bafana Bafana coach. Having moved around a fair bit in his time across Africa, maybe Keshi could be tempted to settle for a club side...
Mzansi, these are some big names. Who would you like to see most plying his trade in South Africa?
