Pitso Mosimane is so far impressing his bosses in Saudi Arabia and a move to Kaizer Chiefs looks unlikely by the day.

Mosimane coached Al-Ahli last season and helped them get promoted to the Saudi Pro League. The fairytale turned into a nightmare for the South African coach as he was reportedly not paid his salaries and bonuses for months. He left the team in June and later reported the matter to Fifa. The association ordered Ahli to pay Jingles around R22,2 million.

Following his exit, the former Mamelodi Sundowns coach left to coach in the United Arab Emirates but his stay was short-lived. Pitso Mosimane returned to South Africa in November and was heavily linked to Kaizer Chiefs. The move did not materialise and Jingles returned to Saudi.

Mosimane’s mandate is to help his side Abha Club survive relegation. Riyad Mahrez’s Al-Ahli won 5-1 and after the match, Mosimane was asked about the R22 million his old club paid him eventually.

“Al-Ahli is the one who introduced people here. And I do not want to talk about financial matters, and I am proud of my work with them,” Mosimane said.

“I am happy with what Al-Ahli has achieved after the difficult last season. I am happy to see its fans happy.

Pitso Mosimane still linked with Kaizer Chiefs

“I’m happy when I see them singing players like [Roberto] Firmino, [Riyad] Mahrez. I am proud of the little bit of my contribution because I know when I was here, I know where it was,” he said as per Goal.

“They are a big team and they gave me a chance to come to Saudi Arabia, and I paid them back for giving me the chance.

“I would not be in Abha if Al Ahli did not bring me. I have nothing against Al Ahli. Good luck to them. I want to see them winning,” said Chiefs target Pitso ‘Jingles’ Mosimane

Mosimane at peace his former club Al-Ahli Saudi

Pitso Mosimane’s potential move to Chiefs might depend on the results. Should the former Downs mentor fail to keep the club relegated, the Saudi owners might not extend his contract. Amakhosi are yet to find a new coach as the search continues. Last week, Jingles appeared to have impressed his bosses but three matches without a win might have changed everything.
