According to KickOff, Saintfiet admits that he has some unfinished business in the PSL and hopes to return sooner rather than later.

"Yes I am flying back to Belgium tonight," Saintfiet said.

Sainfiet only guided Stars to three wins and soon after the former Namibian national team coach was given the sack.

Meanwhile Ea Lla Koto have given the head coaching role to Kinah Phiri on a "caretaker" basis but revealed that the club is in no hunt for a permanent coach as of yet.
