Neeskens joined the Brazilians back in 2011 following a spell in Turkey where he worked as an assistant coach at Galatasaray.
His spell at Sundowns was less than satisfactory, as he parted ways with the club just a year later in 2012 without a trophy, although he did manage to reach two cup finals in that time.
Neeskens was also Sundowns’ last foreign head coach.
As Sundowns were preparing to jet out to Egypt, where they will take on Al Ahly, the Dutchman is understood to have paid a visit to Chloorkop to talk football with the club’s current head coach, Rulani Mokwena.

Mokwena took to social media to share the encounter between the two coaches, revealing that the Dutch legend provided him with “a free football lecture”.
The young coach will be hoping to use all the information he received from Neeskens in Saturday’s encounter, which if won, will all but ensure Sundowns a passage to the CAF Champions League quarterfinal.
The match is scheduled for kick off at 21:30pm.
