Former Nigeria national team head coach Stephen Keshi was strongly linked with South African club Orlando Pirates on Thursday.
However Keshi has come out and denied those links.
“No, I have no idea on that. There has been no contact with me,” Keshi told Soccer Laduma.
Bucs are one of South Africa’s strongest clubs along with Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns. The club has been on a downward spiral in recent seasons, failing to contend for the PSL title.
This is despite reaching two Caf finals at the same time, and the pressure is mounting on coach Eric Tinkler.
“Yes, I hope to coach there,” Keshi admitted his desire to work in South Africa.
