Sekhukhune United head of development coach Thabo Senong has admitted that he’d be open to coach any team in the high ranks, should the better opportunity arise.
The 42-year-old mentor, who is no stranger to the local scene having already served as a head coach of the U/20 South Africa team, was appointed head of development after being an assistant coach to the fired Kaitano Tembo at Sekhukhune.
Speaking to ThisIsFootball.Africa, the former Lesotho national team coach did not hesitate to say he is available to be a head coach to any team in the DStv Premiership.
“Absolutely, absolutely why not,” Senong told ThisIsFootball.Africa.
“Any opportunity that opens, you have to look at how interesting is that project. You need to ask, is it attractive, is there backup from the management, does it suit your skills, then you go for it.
“I am a qualified coach, I am experienced, I have been a youth developer, I have been a national team head coach, I have been in different phases of coaching. I have been a performance coach. And I have been exposed in international tournaments, so it depends on the opportunity.”
However, the 42-year-old mentor has insisted that his goal is to continue managing the club’s development side, as he has a strong ambition that can benefit the team and the national team.
“At this point, I am going to put all my energy into being head of development because I have got a passion to always produce players for our country,” the former Lesotho national team coach said.
“I am so happy with this project and in my opinion, it’s a big project because when you head a development structure you are coaching the coaches, the players and you identify talent. It should make a positive impact on Sekhukhune United and for our national team.”
