Keshi denies Pirates reports

03 June 2016, 16:57

Cape Town - Former Nigeria boss Stephen Keshi has dismissed reports suggesting he is on the verge of being named as Orlando Pirates'  new head coach.

Widespread reports in the South African media have suggested that Keshi is being lined up as Eric Tinkler's replacement, with a deal thought to be close to being agreed.

However, Keshi has expressed his surprise at the recent reports, insisting that he hadn't been contacted about the Pirates job.

"Honestly I'm shocked to hear this," Keshi told SuperSport.com. "I don't know where this is coming from because I have not discussed anything or offer with anyone and my representative have not done so too, or otherwise I would have been informed.

"Like I told you the last time if I'm approached and the deal meets my terms, why not? I'm a professional and open to offers provided they are good enough for me."

Keshi's representative, Tim Sukazi of QT Sports, echoed the sentiments of the former Nigeria coach, telling Business Day: "I should emphasise that at this stage, there is no such deal.

"He signed up with us to manage him because of our stronghold in SA and, it is our intention to bring him here.

"If Pirates come out and say they need a coach, then definitely, we'll look to take him there. But have we engaged with Pirates in that regard? No."
