Sundowns are yet to tie Mosimane to a new deal despite months of negotiations, and with all football suspended and the country about to go into lockdown, the PSL season is certain to finish in June or even later.

The Absa Premiership league was set to finish on May 9 while the Nedbank Cup final was scheduled for May 23.

The 55-year-old coach recently revealed that the negotiations were 80% done, and that he was only waiting on the club to agree to a few special clauses.

“I have complied to what Sundowns wanted. I have complied,” Mosimane said after his side’s CAF Champions League elimination at the hands of Al Ahly as quoted by KickOff.Com

“I am waiting for Sundowns now. You can ask Sundowns. I have complied. The ball is in Sundowns’ court, not in my court. There is no more ‘what is left, what is left’. I am here. I want to be here. I hope I am here.”

The reigning PSL champions will likely aim to conclude negotiations with the 2016 CAF Coach of the Year during the next three weeks while the PSL is suspended.

On the contrary, the world governing body FIFA is also discussing ways to address the issue of contracts elapsing as it affects all the major leagues with the PSL set to be guided by their decision.
