Cape Town - Mpumalanga Black Acescaretaker coach Jacob Sakala says he does not harbour any aspirations of taking the job on a permanent basis.

Sakala stepped into the hot seat when Clive Barker was redeployed a fortnight ago and, under his tutelage, the club has collected three points in the league, before keeping their Nedbank Cup aspirations alive with a 1-0 win over Jomo Cosmos in the last 16.
"No, no, no...this seat is too hot for me," Sakala told the PSL's official website.
"I'm happy with my position and so it will be only until the end of the season and from there it will be up to management to make the next move on the head coach," added Sakala.
Sakala is more focused on the immediate task at this juncture, and that is securing a spot in the top eight of the league standings at the end of the season.
Aces are currently 11th, just four points behind Maritzburg United, who are locked in the final MTN8 spot. There will be tough matches along the way though but Sakala believes the objective can be realised.
"There is hope for us and we want to still work towards the top eight. It will be tough, but we will know once we play our next league game how easy or how difficult it will be to climb the mountain," he said.
"That game is against [Mamelodi] Sundowns and if we can overcome this big stone we will know that we can climb the mountain easily. We have six games to go and my personal target is to win four of them," added Sakala.
