Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has threatened to quit South African football after constantly finding himself under the media spotlight, for all the wrong reasons.
The outspoken tactician has often landed in hot water with the PSL due to his various criticisms of the league, and in particular the level of refereeing in the top flight.
In fact, the former Bafana Bafana coach has a PSL Disciplinary Committee hearing on April 20 after being charged with misconduct and unsporting behavior after the league fixture against Mpumalanga Black Aces earlier this month.
And, speaking after receiving the Coach of the Month award this week, a clearly frustrated Mosimane said: "I don't cheat the game and I don't short-change the game. I don't have time to play golf or do other things. I'm a loyal servant of football, but sometimes I feel that in South Africa you don't understand me. You personalise things.
"And I feel that if it becomes too difficult for me, maybe I must go to youth coaching or go to [coach] at the neighbouring countries. I can coach anywhere in the world.
"If you want me to be apologetic, I can give you those mild interviews: 'Okay, we played well. The team played well'. You can have them. I can give it to you.
"When I speak from the heart, it is not accepted in South Africa. Maybe I will leave.
"Yes, I may not earn the money that I earn and my lifestyle can change, but I can adjust. I can still take my children to school and I can still stay at my house but leave South African football."
