Gordon Igesund admits he is open to a return to coaching in the Absa Premiership.

The four-time league winner has been training the youth in Cape Town after opening his own academy.

He last coached at Highlands Parks in 2017, having guided Manning Rangers, Orlando Pirates, Santos and Sundowns to top-flight glory.

Speaking to the Daily Sun, the former Bafana boss said: "People think I have retired, but I haven’t.

"I have been working hard on my academy for the past 18 months. We've got 300 boys whom we feed 200 meals a month.

"We are schooling them. It is a proper, proper academy and it is what I’m doing."

He added: "But at the same time, I have been keeping myself abreast of what is happening in the PSL, and also new coaching methods in the world.

"We'll see if something comes up. But my academy is up and running now. My academy has seen huge, huge investments. We do all the testing of players, high-performance centre.

"But we'll see what happens if something comes up in the PSL."
