Zondo determined to bag PSL coaching gig

Former Bloemfontein Celtic head coach Khabo Zondo has expressed his burning desire to coach in South Africa's top-flight again.

Zondo's recently worked alongside Doctor Khumalo and Jerry Sikhosana to identify talented young players for the Nedbank Ke Yona Team Search, but the campaign is understood to have ended after the sponsors pulled out.

Now the 58-year-old tactician, who has previously coached at Golden Arrows and Mamelodi Sundowns, is eager to get back into the PSL.

"There's nothing else I know more than football," he said, as quoted by DailySun.

"All my life I have been in football with teams that did not have the financial muscle. I have paid my dues from development to the first-team level.

"I'm hoping if the opportunity comes it will be from clubs that have all the materials and I can showcase what I am capable of."

Zondo won the Telkom Knockout Cup with Siwelele in 2007 and also helped Arrows earn promotion back into the top-flight back in 2000.
