A local agent has confirmed discussions for an Italian coach with an Absa Premiership club, who is keen to come to Mzansi.
As reported in edition 1175 of Soccer Laduma, Italian coach Marko Ragini has expressed an interest in coaching in Mzansi’s topflight, as confirmed by his South African-based representatives.
“I’ve got an Italian coach that I am representing and his name is Marko Ragini. He’s got an impressive CV – very impressive! I spoke to one club in the PSL (Absa Premiership) about the coach, and though interest has been shown, the time isn’t right as the season is still on and there is currently a coach there (at the club),” Ernest Mokoena confirmed representing the mentor.
“The club official I spoke to said that although the coach’s CV is impressive, the situation the team is in on the log (relegation zone) wouldn’t be suitable for a new coach who has never coached in the PSL,” said Mokoena.
“So, I am still looking for a club for him in the PSL and he is still in Italy. We signed the contract to represent him last month and we have been communicating, and he’s showing so much interest in the PSL,” the representative added.
The 52-year-old coach has coached in Switzerland, Lithuania and Slovakia, amongst other countries, while in Africa Ragini has coached in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Nigeria, respectively.
