Johannesburg - Former Netherlands and South Korea head coach, Dick Advocaat, has dropped out of the race for the Bafana coaching job.The 66-year-old confirmed he will sign a two-year contract with Serbia and has the mandate to lead them to the 2016 European Championship in France, according to the Soccer-Laduma website."I didn't want to be a club manager anymore,” said Advocaat, who will commence his new job on August 1.Advocaat, who last coached AZ Alkmaar in the Dutch Eredivisie, confirmed he had ‘some vague’ contact with the South African Football Association, but opted for Serbia instead."Of course, there are way fewer options to coach a national team. There was some vague contact with South Africa, but that's too far away for me,” he added.“The Serbian FA initiated the contact with me. They've got an excellent squad and we'll focus completely on Euro 2016.“My contract ends after that tournament, but of course, if we don't qualify, I'll leave."South Africa are set to announce their new head coach on Saturday, July 26, with Carlos Queiroz , Stephen Keshi and Frank Rijkaard the front-runners for the job.
