Former Super Eagles Coach, Stephen Keshi has said that he has not been contacted to become South Africa club side, Orlando Pirates head coach.
Keshi who was shocked to hear of the news that he had landed the job as Pirates manager has revealed that no such agreement is in place.
“Honestly I am shocked to hear this,” Keshi said to on Thursday night.
“I do not 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 am approached and the deal meets my terms, why not? I am a professional and open to offers provided they are good enough for me.”
Keshi’s representative, Tim Sukazi, who owns South African-based agency, QT Sports, made it clear that there is no deal between his client and the Buccaneers “at this stage.”
He added that QT Sports intends to get Keshi a job in South Africa.
“I should emphasis 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,” Sukazi was quoted as saying by South African newspaper, Business Day.
“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.”
Orlando Pirates spokesperson, Thandi Merafe, also dismissed the reports of hiring Keshi saying, “there is nothing of that sort.”
Keshi has an impressive coaching CV, which has seen him win the Africa Cup of Nations as Nigeria manager and qualified Togo to the 2006 FIFA World Cup.
