Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane confirmed that his contract with the PSL giants is set to expire at the end of the season, and has revealed his interests going forward.
The 55-year-old coach has had seven successful years with the Tshwane giants having joined the club in 2012, helping them win the Absa Premiership four times as well as the CAF Champions League and CAF Super Cup.
Despite reports that Mosimane’s contract is unlikely to be renewed, the former Bafana Bafana coach assured that it is his interest to remain with the Brazilians.
“I want to stay. My heart and spirit is here. It is in that space where there are contract negotiations [taking place] of course,” said Mosimane as quoted by KickOff.Com
“I will never question if Sundowns want me to stay. The president has said it and has told you guys.
“I am telling you I want to stay. I am not going to tell you ‘I am thinking, I will see, and drag time, I don’t know’.
“I want to stay, but we need to talk about the contract. Negotiations are ongoing. There are people helping me with the negotiations.”
The Brazilians got their CAF Champions League group stage campaign off to a winning start with a resounding 3-0 success over Angola’s Petro de Luanda.
