According to the former Orlando Pirates coach and Head of Youth, Augusto Palacios, Pitso Mosimane is simply too expensive, not to mention his team of assistants.

“Pitso needs to wait for an offer. The offer can come from anywhere because of his existence,” Palacios said, as quoted by Goal.

“He has made a name for himself, but he has to be patient because I don’t think teams in South Africa can afford him.

“What you should know is that he had made sacrifices to be where he is. He is like Jose Mourinho, but his wife is his agent and she knows what she is doing. He has to wait for the right opportunity as he doesn’t come cheap.

“He needs to be paid. He has a great value. He is not cheap. He needs to be paid the right amount. Pitso and Rhulani [Mokwena] have made a lot of sacrifices to achieve what they have achieved and they deserve what they are getting paid,” the Perusian added.

Additionally, are Chiefs ready to add Mosimane’s technical team of Maahier Davids, Kabelo Rangoaga, Musi Matlaba, Kyle Solomon, and goalkeeper coach Hamad Alyami to their payroll? Palacios is not sure.

“And for Pitso, he has his own technical team which he trusts and works with. So he can coach anywhere. He did it at Sundowns. He did it in Egypt. Then he went to [Saudi] Arabia and UAE,” Palacios continued.

“He has coached the national team Bafana Bafana as well. So he can coach anywhere but he has to be patient until the right offer comes through and it will come,” the Pirates legend concluded.
