Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane admits that he would only work at a Premiership club that has CAF silverware ambitions.
The former Bafana Bafana coach registered a historic feat after leading Sundowns to the CAF Champions League title this season.
In what could be perceived as a dig at Kaizer Chiefs, who are infamous for neglecting continental football, Mosimane said football should not only be restricted to the Premiership.
"I said it from day one: I came to Sundowns to win the Champions League. It will be very difficult for me to coach a team that doesn't believe in playing continental football," Mosimane told KickOff.
"You have to think internationally - ok, first domestically, but then international. You cannot say, I have a product - let's say a business - in South Africa, and South Africa loves the product, and it's good.
"But then you say, I don't want to sell it to Zimbabwe, I don't want to sell it to Morocco, or Egypt, and I don't even want to sell it, to Japan. Do you see where I am going?
"So Sundowns has to play in South Africa, Sundowns has to play in Zimbabwe, in Zambia, in Morocco, Egypt and Sundowns can go to Japan and play football.
"That's proper business. I might be wrong, other people may say, 'No, I'm happy to sell my product in South Africa, that's it."
Following Sundowns' participation in the Champions League, Mosimane's charges will now have to play catch up in the Premiership.
The Chloorkop side have only played three league matches and have five games in hand. 'Downs are currently second-last on the Premiership log.
