Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says
he will only sign one more contract with the club as he eyes his departure in
The 55-year-old tactician has enjoyed tremendous success
with Masandawana ever since taking over at the club seven years ago and added
another trophy to their cabinet on Saturday by winning the Telkom Knockout Cup.
Now Mosimane is in the process of negotiating his final
long-term contract with the Brazilians and says he wants a lucrative deal
because being a head coach is incredibly stressful.
"Yeah, the contract... I think I have said it, I want
to stay. I want to stay, I'm here, so at the moment there's no agreement at
this point in time but I hope we find an agreement," Mosimane was quoted
as saying by Far Post.
"But what I know is that Sundowns want me to stay and
what I know is I want to stay, so we need to agree on staying. It's the very
first time I'm in this position. I've never been in this position before.
"I've been here for seven years and I've had two contracts,
and there has never been any issue, I have always signed them any time, any day
and I don't think you've heard before about me stalling on a contract.
"I am 55 and I want to go at 60 (retire) - this is too
stressful. I can't be having this stress all the time. So it is my last
contract and I think it must be worth it.
"That's probably the last contract you
know, so I'm here I love Mamelodi Sundowns, the supporters love me and they
want me to stay."
