The much maligned Mashaba, who's known for his excellent track record in youth development, has been without a job since his controversial sacking as the national team coach.

Despite his vast experience within various youth levels of South Africa's national side's and two stints as the senior mentor - the former Swaziland boss claimed he was done with football - following his previous dismissal.

However, with the 67-year-old having only managed a short stint with Black Leopards in the South African top-flight during the modern era, Shakes admits his recent involvement with the Nedbank Cup Ke Yona team has reawakened his passion for management.

"Well let me start off by saying I was dead," he said as reported via KickOff website.

"I am waiting for anybody, out of the country as well I will definitely take it."
