Cape Town - South Africa U17 manager Molefi Ntseki
has denied being approached by Kaizer Chiefs to become a part of the
club's technical team under a new coach who is yet to be appointed.
Reports in the media suggest that Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter
is set to step down from his role and take over at Naturena for his
second stint in charge of the Glamour Boys.
As such, it has been reported that Baxter is keen to bring Ntseki to Chiefs after being impressed with his work with Amajimbos.
Speculation is also rife that former Amakhosi playing legend Doctor
Khumalo will become the Englishman's assistant after recently parting
ways with Baroka as technical director.
Nonetheless, Ntseki has refuted claims that the deal is almost done
and insists he has a binding contract to honour with the South African
Speaking to Soccer Laduma, he said: "I have heard nothing. I am going into camp with the U17s and if there was interest, there is a process to follow.
"I am contracted to SAFA and, if anyone was interested in me, they would have to engage with SAFA.
"Look, it's normal in football for clubs to be interested in you if
you are in a job elsewhere. It happens in football. It happened just
before the World Cup with Spain and the coach lost the opportunity of
going to the World Cup.
"Sometimes you don't know that a club wants you, but if you are doing
well and a club believes that you can add value, they will be
interested. It's normal in football."
