Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says he will only sign one more contract with the club as he eyes his departure in five years.

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."
