Mamelodi Sundowns have made the right decision to hand head coach Pitso Mosimane a new long-term contract, according to retired midfielder Joel Masilela.

Masandawana announced on Thursday that Mosimane had signed a new four-year deal, and Masilela believes it was well-deserved and unsurprising.

"That's good for the club. It's not surprising, to be honest. He has set records at Sundowns and the way he conducted himself throughout his spell at Sundowns," Masilela told Goal.

"The commitment was there, the silverware, there's no way you can lose a coach like Pitso.

"He has done well for Sundowns and the players relate to him better than any coach. He knows better than anyone that has coached at Sundowns, he knows the team, the tradition, and culture of Sundowns.

"I think he deserves it, it's good for him and it's worth it for the club. The rumours are now dead and buried. Despite the rumours, I knew he was going to sign a new contract.

"Hopefully, it's going to work for both parties. I wish him all the best and I'm confident he will take the club to a greater height in the upcoming seasons."
