‘I have already put in a proposal to him. In fact, I asked him two days after his retirement, he indicated that it is something he’ll be keen on but obviously we need to talk about the scale,’
He added :
‘AB has just retired with the notion of him wanting to spend some time with his family. If I’m going to put him in the development or pipeline structures and he spends more time away than when he was in the national team, then it’s obviously not going to work for him”.
‘So we just need to sit and agree on how and when we’re going to do it and the details around it. But it is something that he has indicated that he would be keen to do.’
We just can’t wait to watch Mr.360 back on the ground again.
