Cape Town - Former Free State Stars coach Tom Saintfiet still harbours aspirations of again plying his trade in the Premiership, granted the opportunity to do so presents itself.

Saintfiet coached Ea Lla Koto between July and November last year and had a promising start to the campaign.
However, during his tenure at the helm, the Belgian mentor was severely criticised for playing an overly defensive brand of football and, during the latter stages of the year, positive results were not forthcoming.
The leadership at Free State Stars eventually ran out of options and decided to part ways with the coach, before entrusting Kinnah Phiri with the responsibility of reviving the team’s fortunes for the remainder of the campaign.
Saintfiet said he still followed the Premiership extensively, adding that he had unfinished business in the South African top flight.
"Since I left Free State Stars FC, I follow the PSL on a daily basis," Saintfiet told Soccer Laduma.
During his tenure in the Free State, Saintfiet always expressed his complete satisfaction with coaching in South Africa and he clearly wants to do more of it in future.
"I loved working at the Bethlehem-based club and I want to return to the PSL. I know the league and the players. I still have something to prove in South Africa," said Saintfiet.
