Once again, Pitso Mosimane confirmed that Kaizer Chiefs never approached him to become their new coach.

The man known as Jingles was heavily linked with Amakhosi for several months but nothing materialised. Every time a report mentioned Chiefs’ potential coach, Pitso’s name was often the first to be thrown in a hat. Until last week, he was a top favourite to take over but it appears Mosimane was never in the running in the first place.

Tunisian coach Nasreddine Nabi is a strong favourite to take over at Naturena in the next week or two. Pitso on the other hand, has finally spoken about Chiefs in detail. During his conversation with Andile Ncube on Sports Night Amplified, Jingles said he was never approached by Amakhosi management.

“Well, I have never had any conversation with Kaizer Chiefs,” Pitso said.

“You must know how my things are done from our office. Sometimes the office(MT Sports) doesn’t tell us when the offer is not on the table. Im on good terms with Bobby, Jessica and Kaizer(Motaungs).

Pitso Mosimane won’t coach Kaizer Chiefs

I go to places where no one has gone, same with SuperSport United, same with Mamelodi Sundowns, same with Al Ahly, they never won the Champions League in six years. So, can go whoever.”

Pitso admitted that if Kaizer Chiefs approached him, he might take the offer. However the former Sundowns mentor said the club would need to give him a mandate on what they aim to achieve in the long term.

“It’s an exciting project[Joining Chiefs] but a difficult project in terms of understanding and turnaround times. It’s not about qualifying for the top eight and winning it,” Mosimane added.

“It must be a good project, teams are going to Club World Cup, receiving a billion rand, and football in Africa has changed. “

Earlier in the week, Pitso was asked about the Kaizer Chiefs job and he reiterated “I have not heard anything from the office”.

“I have not heard anything from the [MT Sports] office, but also, I don’t want to come across as if I am throwing the club under the bus,” Mosimane said as quoted by Sowetan.

“Taking any job requires a lot of details, like what are [Chiefs] trying to achieve? How are they going to turn things around? What sort of investment will be made and for how long?”

Pitso has now confirmed once and for all that, he is not joining Kaizer Chiefs anytime soon. Nabi is most likely to take over at Naturena.
