Gordon Igesund to return to PSL Premiership coaching next season

accreditation

The 63-year-old's last Absa Premiership team was Highlands Park in 2017 but since then he has been grooming young talent at his Cape Town-based academy.

"I'll be back next year hey, I'll be coaching again," Igesund tells KickOff.com.

"I just gave it a break for my academy, but now my academy is up and running I can go back now."

The third-most successful PSL coach of all time refused to say much at this stage except revealing which league he was planning to work in next season.

"I can never go to NFD, you know that, I'm going to the premier league next year. I have been doing a lot of stuff hey in the last 18 months."

Igesund has guided Manning Rangers, Orlando Pirates, Santos and Mamelodi Sundowns to the Absa Premiership title.
