Speaking to Phakaaathi on Monday morning, Singh said he was open to the idea but there would have to be a clear guideline and understanding between him and Safa.

“I have heard that a few times. I am humbled that they see me fit for that position and of course I would happily consider it if it were offered to me,” said Singh.

“Neil has done a great job there but perhaps it is time to take it up a level. My main focus would be on ensuring proper development structures are in place to be able to constantly produce players who will graduate to Bafana,” he added.
