Orlando Pirates legend Ian Palmer still job hunting

Orlando Pirates legend Ian Palmer is still in the market for a coaching job in either the DStv Premiership or GladAfrica Championship.

The now 54-year-old Palmer last coached in 2019.

Palmer had been busy in the recently-concluded ABC Motsepe League playoffs scouting players for future employers.

“No it’s been Covid, so my last team was Royal Eagles,” Palmer told KickOff.com.

“So last year I was at Richards Bay in November, December, but it didn’t work out between us. In the playoffs (I was with) Vaal University of Technology just scouting there. You know, it’s good looking at players in case you find a team and you know you’ve identified some players.

“Look it has been Covid, and a lot of chairpersons have set coaches already during the Covid. So yes, that’s one of the issues.

“It’s been difficult times for football and everybody. I think lot of them are toning down in terms of looking at high-profile coaches and things like that.

“But I’m still in the market, still in football 100 percent you know. I’m looking for a team in the PSL, NFD whether it’s assistant or head coach that’s fine.”

Palmer’s playing days at Orlando Pirates were cut short by a kidney ailment. He received a kidney transplant in 2016.
