Pitso Mosimane rejects 'big money' move to Qatar

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane has reportedly rejected an offer to coach a team in Qatar.

Mosimane won his fourth Absa Premiership title with Sundowns at the weekend, beating Free State Stars 1-0 as they went on to humble Orlando Pirates to second place. This has made Mosimane become the first coach to win four league titles with one club.

Despite big money offers streaming from abroad, Mosimane has firmly told that he would prefer to remain at Chloorkop and continue his winning streak where he has won a trophy every season since 2013/14.

“Even this week I got a call from Qatar. If it’s about money it’s easy, but I don’t like my CV to be having this club this year and this other club next year,” Mosimane told KickOff. 

“It’s always good financially, you pocket money because you sign a three-year contract. They sack you after one year and if they don’t pay you, you go to FIFA. You move again and you can do rotation. A lot of guys have made lots of money, but here in South Africa they don’t win but they have made a lot of money moving around. Maybe I don’t know the business well and I must look at the business side now."

The former Bafana Bafana coach further told: “But I like to stay where I am. I was seven years at Supersport United. I have six years here [at Sundowns]. I have only coached two teams in the PSL and I spent five years with Bafana Bafana and it was worth it. I went to Bafana Bafana to understand international football.”
