Former Bafana Bafana star and Orlando Pirates legend, Daine Klate, has been linked with a possible return to the Premier Soccer League (PSL) in a coaching capacity.
SuperSport United CEO, Stan Matthews, has expressed interest in having Klate join his side in the future.
Klate Open to Coaching SuperSport United
According to SoccerLaduma, Klate is open to coaching SuperSport United in the future.
He has sentimental memories of Matsatsantsa, and if the opportunity arises, joining them would be a match made in heaven.
Klate stated, “SuperSport is close to my heart.
The person that I am, they played a huge part in that.
It’s a place I will always call home because of what I’ve built and the family that I’ve left behind there.
If I go there any day, everybody loves having me around, and they will still greet me the same.
I appreciate what they have done for me, to a certain degree, they appreciate what I have done for them.
So, for me, if the call comes and I am needed, and if it suits me and the club, then it would definitely be a match made in heaven.”
SuperSport United CEO Keen to Welcome Klate in the Future
Matthews has also expressed his interest in having Klate join SuperSport United in a coaching capacity.
However, he stated that it is something he will consider in the future, as he already has the coaching staff he needs.
Matthews confirmed that Klate would be the kind of candidate he would bring back to the club, stating, “There’s a future for Daine Klate at SuperSport.
It’s not now because we are full, and we just took Jabu (Maluleka), and I am steered by my head coach, and Gavin wanted Jabu in, and we were comfortable with that.”
Possible Future Move for Klate to SuperSport United
Therefore, it seems likely that Klate could make a return to the PSL and join SuperSport United in the future.
While Matthews is happy with his current coaching staff, he has expressed his interest in having Klate join the club at some point, suggesting that he sees potential in the former Bafana Bafana star.
