Former Mamelodi Sundowns manager Pitso Mosimane has addressed questions about considering a return to South Africa as he is currently without a job.

Mosimane, during an exclusive with the South African journalists, claimed returning to local football is not solely up to him to decide, according to a report by FARPost.

The former Supersport United boss admitted that he would have to table the request with his team to see if they find the local project interesting.

"It is not just about me alone, the team that I have, they are people that have been working with me for 11 years," he said.
"You must understand when people have decided to go with you for that long. You cannot make that decision by yourself alone because this is my A-team.
"With this team, I function. I do not have to tell who is doing the match analysis, who is checking the opposition, who is checking the matches we have played.
"We are professionals and I am led by the them. If the guys say yes it is home, there are a few boxes that need to be ticked. Then it is home."
