Cape Town - Former Mamelodi Sundowns coach Johan Neeskens admits that he would be open to a return to the Premiership.

The Dutch legend was in charge of Sundowns between 2011 and 2012 before being replaced with current coach Pitso Mosimane.

The 64-year-old, who is conducting coaching courses with the Dutch FA, would consider a return to South Africa if the offer was right.

"I can never say no but it depends if it is the right moment and if it is the right club, in football you can never say no," Neeskens told the PSL website.

"At the moment I am enjoying it here at the Dutch Football Association but you never know. I am always around, if somebody comes with the right offer which impresses me, then you never know."
