Cape Town - Former Free State Stars coach Serame Letsoaka has revealed he could return to work in the Absa Premiership, but not before the end of this season.

The 54-year-old has been out of a job since parting ways with Ea Lla Koto during the off-season, although he's been keeping himself busy working for FIFA.

Letsoaka is keen to find more permanent employment, but insists reports he has been offered the post of technical director by the Botswana FA are wide of the mark.

However, he did acknowledge that clubs in South Africa's top flight have shown an interest in his services and suggested he could be back in business next term.

"Yeah, look there is no story, no story with the BFA (Botswana FA) thing, there is nothing to talk about like I am saying there's no story on that," Letsoaka told Goal when asked about the rumours.

"I have been busy with FIFA work... since I left coaching, I have been doing lot of FIFA work in many countries such as Qatar, Malaysia, Zambia - in many countries.

"I am doing work on coaching as we speak, but I can tell you that I got an offer from a PSL club but I refused because it was in the middle of the season.

"It was 10 games to wrap up the current season then and it was not possible for me to take the job as a coach. However, I have two offers now in front of me.

"We will see at the end of the season, but I can tell you something will definitely happen. Talks are at an advanced stage - this is one PSL club and one in the NFD - no, no there is nothing in Botswana, there is no offer there."
