Solinas was fired by Chiefs just three months into the job in December last year, following Amakhosi’s poor start to the 2018/19 season.

“Yeah sure. Why not? Of course, I’ll love to coach in the PSL again,” Solinas told SunSport when asked if he would consider any offers from PSL clubs.

Chiefs have started well this season under Ernst Middendorp and are currently top of the log standings and Solinas said he was “extremely” excited to see his former club doing well.

“With me, there’s no problem. I’m very happy to see them playing so well,” added Solinas.

“I’m happy for Chiefs and also for Amakhosi fans. So I wish them all the best.”

Solinas was in charge of 22 games in all competitions for Chiefs, but only managed to win eight, lost seven and drew the other seven matches.

The Italian mentor did enjoy two successful spells in charge of Free State Stars in the 2015/16 and 2016/17 seasons, reaching the semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup and Telkom Knockout.
