Jomo Sono has rubbished reports that he is set for another ambulance job in charge of Bafana Bafana at the forthcoming African Nations Cup in Tunisia.
This after media reports on Monday speculated that a routine business meeting between the Black Prince and Safa vice-president Irvin Khoza was related to the national coaching job.
Last week Khoza rebuked incumbent Bafana Bafana coach Shakes Mashaba on national television for his handling of the issue around the availability of the overseas-based stars badly.
Mashaba has steadfastly refused to accomodate striker Benni McCarthy and defender Mark Fish who both requested that they link up with the 22-man squad a few days late.
Sono, however, poured cold water on the whole thing by saying: "I'm not even thinking about the Bafana job, as I've not been approached and they have a coach.
I did meet with Irvin today, but it was regarding our involvement with Exel Petroleum and wasn't football-related.
"We've had numerous meetings and even met on Christmas Day. I've coached at the Nations Cup before, as well as at the World Cup, so I've done it all before.
The wily Sono did, however, leave the door slightly ajar by adding:"You never know, it's life, but I've not been approached."
Sono is not new to taking the job at short notice having done so for the 1998 African Nations Cup and again at the 2002 World Cup.
Do you think Jomo Sono can do a better job than Shakes Mashaba?
