Bondas wants to continue in Angola



Former Mamelodi Sundowns, Moroka Swallows and Orlando Pirates coach Viktor Bondarenko says he is keen to return for another spell in Angola even after Kabuscorp Palanca did not extend his contract.

Bondarenko is now back at his Johannesburg base but eyeing another chance to coach in the GiraBola where earnings are potentially lucrative.

“I want to continue helping the development of Angolan football, it’s a marvelous country,” he said.

The veteran Russian coach, who also had a spell in the Premier Soccer League with Umtata Bush Bucks, started at Kabuscorp in 2010 but was fired midway through the 2010 season.

He returned at the start of the 2011 year and took Kabuscorp to a surprise second place in the Angolan league, missing out on the title on a dramatic last day of the season in November.

Bondarenko was feted for his role in taking the unfashionable club from Luanda’s suburbs to their best ever finish in the league.

This year, Kabuscorp finished fourth in the GiraBola, signing the 41-year-old former World Footballer of the Year Rivaldo for the season.

But the club have since replaced him with Bulgaria Edu Antranik for the 2013 season.

The Russian first came to Africa to work as Mozambican national coach and took the country to the 1996 African Nations Cup finals. He also worked at Maputo club Costa do Sol and in 2009 took his first job in Angola as coach of Primeiro Agosto.

Bondarenko’s last job in South Africa was a brief spell at Sundowns 10 years ago.
