Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane confirmed that he turned down an offer to coach an unnamed club in Qatar.

Sundowns won their fourth Premiership title on Saturday under Mosimane and it is the side's ninth overall.

The Brazilians also won the 2016 CAF Champions League and handed Egyptian giants Al Ahly a 5-1 beating in the quarterfinals of the competition this year.

As such, it appears the former Bafana Bafana mentor is drawing plenty of interest from abroad in terms of interest in his services.

He said as quoted by KickOff website: "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.

"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 lot of money moving around.

"Maybe I don't know the business well and I must look at the business side now.

"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."
