South African coaching legend Pitso Mosimane says there’s a stronger chance of returning to coach a national team and not a club if he were to return to the African continent. This is amid persistent rumours linking him with the Kaizer Chiefs job.

Pitso Mosimane doesn’t want the Kaizer Chiefs job?

Mosimane was speaking during a South African Football Journalists Association (SAFJA) virtual press conference on Tuesday. Jingles is currently on a managerial hiatus after his contract with UAE outfit Al Wahda was terminated. His response to said journalists won’t fill Glamour Boys fans with much hope.

“Yeah and probably, there might be interest back at home and also maybe national teams, it will be nice also but it depends on which one and it depends on the reason also,” Mosimane said.

“It’s Cup of Nations [Africa Cup of Nations] in January, so maybe short-term but even after January the World Cup Qualifiers keep going on. Maybe that can also interest me but it has to be the right thing.

“With the national teams, I don’t have a problem to be back in the continent but club-wise in the continent it’s not gonna be that easy,” Mosimane said.

Pitso moves to the beat of his own drum

Mosimane has built a technical team he trusts. It comprises assistant coach Maahier Davids, physical conditioner Kabelo Rangoaga, match performance analysts Kyle Solomon and Musi Matlaba, and goalkeeper coach Hamad Alyami. Pitso leans heavily on them for decisions around their next project.

“If there’s any movements or anything we want, we have bigger discussions. So, it’s not about me. I’m the head, I’m the face, I’m the leader of the program because I’m the head coach but I’m not the only guy who decides if we should go there or let’s not go there,” he explained.

“It’s not up to me, I’m talking about myself and not MT Sports because what if MT Sports decides to send CVs to strategic places? I have to remove myself from there. If they want to do that on my behalf, yes they can.”
