Former Kaizer Chiefs defender and captain Patrick Mabedi insists he will not close the door on a PSL return after revealing there was interest in his services at SA.
Mabedi is currently the interim head coach of the Malawi national team and was in charge of the Kosafa Cup team that recently participated in the tournament in Durban.
The 49-year-old has worked for a number of PSL clubs since retiring as assistant and associate coach at Chiefs, Moroka Swallows, Black Leopards and the now defunct MP Black Aces.
“On that, we need to put it in the left pocket because we don’t know what tomorrow will bring,” Mabedi said. “Two PSL teams came to me, and they wanted my services. It’s hard to tell now.
“[But] In football, things can happen in a short period of time, so I won’t be able to react right away, but we’ll see when the time comes. I do not know what it is [Malawi] Football is thinking and I don’t know what other teams are thinking. So, we just need to wait and see.”
Mabede was appointed caretaker coach of Malawi in April on a short-term deal and his contract will expire in September. And while he said he’s happy to continue coaching the national team, he’s also not closing the door on the return of the PSL.
“This project I have now is important, you can’t start at home [foundation] And he said, “And I run away, it’s not fair. I think it’s important for these young players. I want to help these kids achieve their goals and achieve what they want.”
