Previously linked with the head coaching jobs at Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates, UEFA instructor Adel Amrouche has explained why he is currently in South Africa.
The former coach of the Botswana national team has been in the country for about a week now and has confirmed to the Siya crew that he is available to take on a coaching role, which was not the case previously. The Siya crew has it on good authority that Amakhosi had contacted the Algerian-born mentor before appointing Gavin Hunt, but Amrouche still had a contract with the Botswana Football Association.
"The time when the club here (in South Africa) contacted me, I was under contract. People who know me, know that I am a man of principle. My word is my word. I didn't accept the deals because I was under contract and I don't regret. It was a honuor to be contacted by these teams, because it's not small teams, it's big teams," Amrouche told the Siya crew.
"Now I am free. When the time comes, it will come. People know how to find me. The time will determine what is going to happen. I want to finish with South Africa. When I take a challenge, I want to do something to finish good because I started good. I want to close my story with a good challenge."
He further explained why he is currently in South Africa.
"You see when you work, sometimes you don't have the opportunity to visit nice places. I was in Kenya and I visited some places. I did not have a chance to visit some of the players while I was working there. This time is for me, because you work and work and you make money and then you die. So I must enjoy my time. You have a beautiful country here in South Africa. I've been to Cape Town and I want to go to Limpopo. Maybe for some people it's strange, but for me it's not strange. Now in this moment it's for me."
