Tovey Open To Coaching Role After Parting Ways With SAFA

Bafana Bafana legend Neil Tovey has admitted that he's open to taking up a coaching role in the Premier Soccer League following his imminent departure from the South African Football Association (Safa).


The 57-year-old has been serving as the Safa technical director for the last five years and his contract which is set to expire at the end of this month will not be renewed.


“Obviously, Safa got to cut down their expenditure,” Tovey told SunSport.


“But at the same time, it is time for me to come back home [Durban]. It was just a mutual understanding. I finished my five-year term there, they took care of me and there were no problems."


“When it comes to coaching, we’ll see about that, if there are clubs interested in me,” Tovey added regarding his immediate future.
