Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has revealed that he wants to coach at youth level when his professional career comes to an end.

Mosimane guided Sundowns to the Telkom Knockout title on Saturday with a 2-1 victory over Maritzburg United.

The former SuperSport United mentor previously said that he wants to help Sundowns win their 10th Premiership trophy in the PSL era.

Mosimane opened up on what he wants to do when he calls it quits in the professional game and the legacy he wants to leave behind.

He said, as quoted by IOL website: "What's in my heart is youth football. I would like to do youth football because nobody does it.

"People talk about youth football, what we need to do but nobody does.

"What are you doing? Look at school's football, is there a programme for schools? That’s where I want to go.

"That's my other passion, that Sundowns have to respect also.

"I need to leave my legacy. My legacy is not about trophies.

"I need to build my own legacy, in terms of sustaining something so that my children can say that our father has left a legacy in youth football that can be sustained."

Meanwhile, the Brazilians are back in action on Saturday evening against Polokwane City.

Kick-off is at 18:00.
