HOW MUCH DOES MANQOBA MNGQITHI MAKE?

Sunday World reports that Mamelodi Sundowns assistant coach Manqoba Mngqithi is currently earning a gross salary of R440 000 a month.

The publication adds that Mngqithi signed a 48-month contract with the football club from 1 July 2020 and expires at the end of this month (June 2024).

Mngqithi reportedly earned a gross salary of R380 000 in the first 12 months of the contract. His salary increased by R20 000 after every season.

Hence the assistant coach currently earns almost half-million (R440 000) package this season.

“As remuneration for the services to be rendered by the employee in terms of this agreement, the club shall pay to the employee, on the last business day of each month, a monthly gross salary of R380 000 (three hundred and eighty thousand rands) for the period 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2021.”

“R400 000 (four hundred thousand rands) for the period 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2022; R420 000 (four hundred and twenty thousand rands) for the period 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2023; and R440 000 (four hundred and forty thousand rands) for the period 1 July 2023 to 30 June 2024,” reads the contract.

IS HE LEAVING MAMELODI SUNDOWNS?

An agent of the Mamelodi Sundowns’ assistant coach confirmed to SABC Sports in 2023 that Manqoba Mgqithi is contracted until 30 June 2024.

“I’ve said this before, Manqoba is contracted to Mamelodi Sundowns until 30 June 2024, so he has another season at the club,” said Mike Makaab.

“He is happy at Sundowns, and unless there is a change of heart. As it stands, Manqoba will be with Mamelodi Sundowns in the new season.”

The publication adds that Mngqithi was demoted in October 2022 with Rulani Mokwena, who subsequently took over as the sole head coach.
