Mamelodi Sundowns executive chairman has confirmed that coach Pitso Mosimane has signed a new contract and will be with the club for the next four years.
He made the annoucement during a press conference – outlining the club’s plans for its 50th anniversary as well as official word that ‘Jingles’ will not be going anywhere when his currrent deal runs out at the end of the month. It had taken months to negotiate, but Mosimane had always made it clear that he wants to remain at the Downs, though he did acknowledge that they had the financial muscle to rope in a coach with an even bigger profile.
I am very happy that the board of Mamelodi Sundowns has decided to renew the employment contract of our very own “Sir Alex Ferguson”. I am very proud of Pitso’s achievements at Sundowns and I am also confident that Pitso, the technical team and the players will make Sundowns one of the best football clubs on the African continent,” said Motsepe.
“Mamelodi Sundowns has got exciting short to medium term objectives and goals to achieve, which includes building a world class youth academy, scouting department and management team. Investing in our youth, to enable them to play for the senior team and Bafana Bafana is an important objective of our medium to long term plans.”
