Cape Town - While Bafana Bafana prepare for an AFCON qualifier on Wednesday, former coach Gordon Igesund is preparing for SuperSport United's next clash and the tactician is content with where he is.

Gordon Igesund's tenure at the helm of the national team concluded at the end of August after a period of mixed fortunes.

The 58-year-old wasted no time in getting involved in coaching again, replacing Cavin Johnson at Matsatsantsa.

While there may be some thoughts of 'what might have been' for Igesund and Bafana, the former Moroka Swallows boss says that he is happy where he is.

"I am loving every moment here, always looking forward to coming here in the morning at 08h30, spending time on the field with players and so many things to do which I missed for the past two years," Igesund told

Igesund has made a promising start to life at the Tshwane outfit, winning all three of the games he has overseen. While pleased with the positive start, the coach is well aware that there is much work to be done.

"The confidence is back in the team," he said.

"Credit must go to the players.

"They have changed lot of things, they apply themselves.

"They are eager to please the technical team, they are eager to please each other and work for each other. That makes me so happy.

"Three wins in a row is fantastic but there is still more work to do. We have not yet arrived, but still more work to do."

Next on the agenda for Matsatsantsa is a Tshwane derby against University of Pretoria on Saturday.
