Former Manning Rangers and Dynamos coach Steve Komphela says that he is not interested in taking up the vacant coaching position at newly promoted Bush Bucks.
The post at the East London club became available after Zimbabwean national coach Sunday Marimo failed to arrive in the country to take up his duties.
Marimo's excuse for not honouring his contract was apparently that he lost his passport when his car was broken into in Zimbabwe.
Bucks then approached former Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana captain Komphela about the job, but the coach declined the offer due to his commitment to his new job as assistant coach to Bafana Bafana manager Stuart Baxter.
Komphela was considering taking on both jobs, which he once did while he was an assistant coach at Chiefs and Bafana Bafana, but Bucks insisted that he commit himself solely to the Eastern Cape outfit.
"Bucks said they wanted me to only concentrate on coaching them and nothing else," he is reported as saying on news24.
"I tried to negotiate with Safa but since I have already committed myself to the national association I could not leave."
In a latest development to the saga, it has been reported that Marimo has changed his name back to his original surname, Chidzambwa.
