Newly appointed Namibia coach Allister Coetzee has opened up about his return to international coaching after his disastrous stint as Springbok boss.
Following his sacking as Springboks coach in 2018, Coetzee had only coached the Canon Eagles, but he parted ways with the Japanese club in 2020.
Earlier this week it was confirmed that the 58-year-old had taken up position as head coach of Namibia.
In an interview with Netwerk24, Coetzee candidly spoke about his time in charge of South Africa and his current position.
“I had my challenges, but I have no regrets about that time,” he said.
“I learned a lot and as long as you learn it’s a good thing.”
Commenting on his new job, he said: “As a coach, this is what you want to be doing. You want to coach at the highest level.
“And it’s nice to see how well rugby is doing in the emerging nations.”
