Former Springbok coach Peter de Villiers has been interviewed for the Zimbabwe national team coaching job.
De Villiers is widely expected to land the job but said that if he failed he would still be willing to assist Zimbabwe with their preparations for their World Cup qualifiers later this year.
‘I think it will be an honour if the ZRU [Zimbabwe Rugby Union] engage me, but if it goes the other way, well, no hard feelings,’ De Villiers told the local media. ‘I will always be around to help the country develop the sport at any level.’
‘If the ZRU believes I am one of the best candidates and engage me, then I look forward to working with you the media as well.’
Zimbabwe struggled in the African Gold Cup last year, losing to Kenya, Namibia, Tunisia and Uganda. They will be playing the same opponents in their World Cup qualifiers this year.
