Former Orlando Pirates coach Ruud Krol has in his recent interview with the media denied reports linking him with a return to the Absa Premiership as Kaizer Chiefs coach, stating that Chiefs is a family business and that he would find it difficult to make his own personal rule without interference.

Krol famously won the treble in 2011 with the Buccaneers and has since become something of a legendary figure to Sea Robbers supporters.

The Dutchman was reportedly linked with Kaizer Chiefs last season while Steve Komphela was still in charge.

Soccer Laduma website reported that the 69-year-old submitted his CV for the role should the under-fire Komphela resign or be sacked at the time.

Krol has once again been linked with the Glamour Boys with current mentor Giovanni Solinas said to be on thin ice, though Krol denies this to be the case.

“No, no… I have spoken in the last year only with SuperSport (United) to come back to the PSL,” he said.

“We could not find an agreement. South Africa will always have a special place in my heart.

“I will always be open to come back to the country. I had tremendous time there.”

“I cant come back to Chiefs because its a family business and that alone will limit my performance because I wont have the absolute freedom I need as a coach, except they will have to give me the right to make my own decision, that is if am their new coach” Krol stated.
