Cape Town - AmaZulu general manager Lunga Sokhela says the club are still not sure in what capacity they will deploy Bafana Bafana legend Siyabonga Nomvethe.

Nomvethe hung up his boots at the conclusion of the 2018/19 season at the ripe age of 41.

"With Nomvethe there's one or two things the team and his agent are trying to assist him with," Sokhela tells KickOff.com.

"So we are engaging him as well to see what best we can do. Unfortunately during this time you also know that the agents are busy and us as well... things are happening a little bit slow. But that is not a major issue because his contract with the club only expires at the end of this month. So we are working together to try and finalise something.

"We've made it clear that there are intentions to keep him within the club structures because I think he is someone who can add a lot of value. So that's what we are trying to work out because there's quite a number of things involved in it so hopefully we can have something concrete.

"Remember he also has to decide where his interests are. The assumption is because a person was playing football, he has to be a coach. It might not be his interest you see. So he has to sit with us and tell us clearly what his interests are. You can find that he wants to do marketing, who knows?"
