Mosimane: Why would I leave Sundowns

Despite media reports linking him to the vacant Bafana Bafana coaching position, Mamelodi Sundows coach Pitso Mosimane says he will not leave the African champions.

The newly crowned African Coach of the Year says he owes the Tshwane giants a lot after bagging his first CAF Champions League and Absa Premiership trophies.

Local media reports have linked 'Jingles' with a possible return to the national side after Shakes Mashaba was fired in December last year.

However, the ex-Bafana coach says he doesn't want to return to the hot seat and will target making the Brazilians a powerhouse in Africa.

“Sundowns have turned me into the best coach on the continent. I won the Champions League with them for the first time and the Premiership league title with them for the first time. Why would I leave?” said Mosimane to the Daily Sun.

“I’m happy to be here and want to turn this club into the best side on the continent.

“I have had my fun with Bafana. Leaving this team won’t happen – the timing would be completely wrong. I have received offers from outside but told my pursuers that I want to enjoy the benefits of the hard work I have put in here at Sundowns.

“I won’t change my mind and I hope this will lay the matter to rest once and for all.”

Meanwhile, former Ajax Cape Town coach Roger De Sa, Bidvest Wits mentor Gavin Hunt and Cape Town City boss Eric Tinkler are some of the names said to be in the running for the Bafana job.
