Why Carteron didn’t end up at Chiefs – in his own words…

Soccer Laduma - - Siyag Bhoza -

Speak­ing to Soc­cer Lad­uma back in Au­gust, the French­man dis­cussed the in­ter­est from Chiefs, ex­plain­ing that he was ac­tu­ally keen to make the switch to South Africa as part of the next step in his ca­reer.

He said, “I can con­firm that I was ap­proached by peo­ple that con­vinced me that they have been man­dated by Kaizer Chiefs to ne­go­ti­ate with me re­gard­ing the pos­si­bil­ity of tak­ing over the coach­ing post. We en­gaged in hard and hon­est ne­go­ti­a­tions and I think we had ad­vanced quite a lot in our dis­cus­sions and had cov­ered a lot of ground to fi­nalise my pos­si­ble move.

“I was quite ex­cited about the prospect of fi­nally real­is­ing my dream of work­ing in South Africa. But I never re­ally re­ceived a de­fin­i­tive an­swer from Chiefs. Things never reached the stage where I could sign with them and I ended up tak­ing the Al Ahly of­fer.”
