Former Orlando Pirates coach Augusto Palacios says Pitso Mosimane’s price tag is the reason why Kaizer Chiefs are struggling to bring him on board.

Mosimane is currently on the market having parted ways with United Arab Emirates side Al Wahda earlier this month.

Kaizer Chiefs are also looking for a new coach having sacked Molefi Ntseki after just four months in charge.

Jingles has been linked with Chiefs for weeks now but the club has yet to respond to rumours.

Palacois said Mosimane waits for the right opportunity and doesn’t come cheap.

“Pitso needs to wait for an offer. The offer can come from anywhere because of his existence,” Palacios told Soccer Laduma.

“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,” said Palacois.

Since leaving Mamelodi Sundowns, Mosimane has won leagues in Egypt and Saudi Arabia and is now one of the best coaches in Africa.

“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,” said the former Pirates coach.

Kaizer Chiefs have improved since Cavin Johnson took over last month. They have so far won two of the four games since he was appointed interim coach.
