Pitso Mosimane is being considered for the Kaizer Chiefs job alongside Alexandre Santos. What kind of salary would Jingles demand?

Kaizer Chiefs next manager: Shortlist down to two names?

According to the newest report on Saturday 25 May, a meeting at Kaizer Chiefs has concluded that Pitso Mosimane and Alex Santos are the final two candidates. Sead Ramovic is believed to be out of the running.

“To tell you the truth, there are many meetings going on now at the club concerning the coaches. But the latest is that the likelihood of Pitso Mosimane and Alexandre Santos will be one of the coaches,” a source told Soccer Laduma.

“I am telling you that the committee looking at who the coach could be has narrowed their net to these two. Here is the catch or the problem. Who will be available at the start of the seasons? Will Petro de Luanda release Santos or will Abha Club hold onto Pitso if he avoids relegation with them in Saudi Arabia? It will all boil done to availability and also affordability,” the source added.

“You know coach Pitso normally comes with his team and we understand Santos also has other technical team members he wants to come with. That’s where the issue of affordability comes in. Which of the two will the club [Kaizer Chiefs] afford? But as it stands, the fight is between the two of them now,” the source added.

How much money will Pitso Mosimane demand?

When he was in charge of Bafana Bafana, Pitso was taking home roughly R500k a month. Mamelodi Sundowns doubled his money in 2012 when he earned a cool R1 million monthly with the South African champions. In just under eight years at the helm, he won 11 pieces of major silverware.

With Al-Ahli Saudi, Pitso was earning a stratospheric R2.7 million a month and they weren’t even a top-flight side. He did steer them to the Saudi Pro League though. Now with Abha on a short-term deal, Pitso is desperately trying to keep his latest employers in the Saudi Pro League. We can only assume that Abha’s pockets are deeper than Al-Ahli Saudi’s. Will Chiefs need to restructure their entire wage bill to bring this man on board?
