Cape Town - Golden Arrows assistant Mandla Ncikazi has confirmed an approach from Kaizer Chiefs, but says he is keen to stay at the Durban-based club.
The 47-year-old worked with current Amakhosi head coach Steve Komphela at Free State Stars and Maritzburg United previously.
That was before Komphela went on to replace Stuart Baxter this past season.
Ncikazi, who has been linked to Chiefs ever since Komphela left the Team of Choice, is humbled by the approach from the Soweto giants and feels it is a role that would interest any coach in the Absa Premiership.
"I'm enjoying what I'm doing at Arrows," he told reporters. "Chiefs on the other hand are a big club, a big institution and any coach would love to be there.
"It's like you're between the rock and the stone, but I think I will be staying at Arrows. Chiefs have made an approach to me for a second time now.
"But my wish is really to stay here and I want to stay. Arrows have been good to me, Arrows is more of a family club, sister (Mato Madlala, Arrows chairperson) has been more than just a boss.
"I left before, it was not nice and when I came back (this past season) they appreciate my presence as well."
Ncikazi has been an assistant to Clinton Larsen ever since he was relieved of Maritzburg head coach role last season following a failed three-month stint.
