Liverpool legend discloses Chiefs link, keen to return to PSL


Bruce Grobbelaar has revealed that he was among the shortlist for the Kaizer Chiefs head coaching job that saw Ernst Middendorp appointed in 2018

Bruce Grobbelaar – the Zimbabwe Warriors and Liverpool legend has disclosed that he interested in returning to the Premier Soccer League.

He coached SuperSport United between 1999 and 2001.

South Africa, I would love to come back there,” Grobbelaar told the African football podcast On The Whistle as reported by the New Zimbabwe.

I’ve been in touch with Kaizer Motaung at the Kaizer Chiefs. But I couldn’t get that one because Bobby [Motaung] was the one that was picking the coaches. So, there’s a lot of teams that have been in touch,” added the 62-year-old retired goalkeeper.

Grobbelaar also revealed that he did a pre-contract signing with Mamelodi Sundowns in 2000.

This is something that South Africans don’t know. I was asked to take over Sundowns with the Tsichlas family and I signed a pre-contract agreement,” he said.

Grobbelaar further revelaed that the owners of Sundowns club that year – the Tsichlas family had a change of mind and decided to rather give Clemens Westerhof the job.

And so, it was breaking the agreement that I had with them. I took them to court. And I got paid three years of a three-year contract without coaching the team once,” he concluded.

Grobbelaar is currently working as goalkeepers coach and as special advisor for Norwegian second-tier side – Øygarden FK.
