Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane insists he is not demanding a bigger salary as contract negotiations with his club continue.

Mosimane's contract with the defending Absa Premiership champions is set to expire at the end of June.

The Masandawana mentor told the IOL Sport website: "I've never come out and asked for extra money.

"I never said I would not sign my contract because I want a raise in my salary.

"I don't do that because I won a cup against Maritzburg United.

"I’m seven years at the club and I don't do that. I don't ask for loans. I don’t take advantage of the wealth that our president (Patrice Motsepe) has created and then I start to ask for personal favours.

"I've been a gentleman and I stick to my contract and I finish my contract."

Mosimane also said he doesn't harbour any ambition to take on a different challenge at this stage of his career.

He explained: "I don't come and say I have a better offer there; can I go.

"The team knows that I've had better offers, but I never left. I don’t want to talk about success, I'm still here.

"I would never want someone to do my work. Why would I want that? I've worked hard for what I achieved. Why should I give to somebody else?"

Mosimane has guided Masandawana to four Absa Premiership titles, two Telkom Knockout Cups and one Nedbank Cup while also winning the CAF Champions League in 2016.
