Following months of negotiations, Mamelodi Sundowns president Patrice Motsepe has confirmed that coach Pitso Mosimane has signed a new four-year contract with the Brazilians.
Negotiations between Mosimane and Sundowns have been deadlocked for the past few months, but the club’s boss has finally put a stop to all speculations regarding the future of the highly-rated coach.
Mosimane‚ whose current contract was due to expire at the end of June‚ has said on numerous occasions that he wants to stay at the club, and the deadlock was not due to disagreement over money‚ but principles.
In making a conference on Thursday afternoon, Motsepe announced that he is excited that Mosimane is staying.
“I am very happy that the board of Sundowns have renewed the contract of our very own Sir Alex Ferguson. I would like to have him for eight years but we will see‚” said Motsepe.
“I am pleased to confirm that I have signed a four year contract with the club that I love. To the Yellow Nation, thanks to the love and support and I believe the best is yet to come. We will not stop until we deliver the second star,” said Motsepe.
The 55-year-old coach who joined the club in December 2012 after a two-year spell as Bafana Bafana coach achieved unparalleled success at Chloorkop with four Premiership league titles‚ two Telkom Knockout cups and one Nedbank Cup domestically.
Continentally, Mosimane has led the Brazilians to Caf Champions League glory which was soon followed by the Super Cup.
