Zeca Marques is using his time off from professional football to equip himself with the latest trends in world football.
The former Moroka Swallows coach has confirmed to the Siya crew that he will be leaving for Portugal to renew his UEFA Pro Licence.
Marques parted ways with Cape Town-based Santos in the middle of their NFD campaign in December last year, and is currently unattached.
"By law, we have to renew our coaching licences every three years. Mine is due now, at the end of May. So I'm going to Portugal. I will be going to the Portuguese (Football) Federation to renew my UEFA Pro Licence," he said.
"Over and above that, I will be spending some time at FC Porto and Leixoes, a club in the second division. I want to spend some time with them to see what it is that they are doing. I want to catch up with the latest trends in football and with my colleagues as well."
Marques also said he would be open to taking on a new position in the PSL after finishing his two-week stay overseas.
"I am looking for a club in the PSL. I'm done with the NFD. It was an experience, and that's it. I have to move on. I have enough time to think about certain things and I'm looking forward to getting back into the game again," concluded Marques.
