Pitso Mosimane does not come cheap, but the trophy-winning coach is certainly considered worth it.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns boss commands a hefty price tag, but just how much would a South African side have to pay to secure his services as a manager?

Sports Brief takes a look in the context of Kaizer Chiefs' reported interest in Mosimane.

As noted by Times LIVE, the Amakhosi will have to be prepared to pay a monthly salary of approximately R2 million to secure his services. Chiefs have been linked with the South African tactician, as well as Tunisia's Nasreddine Nabi, as they look to appoint a new head coach.

Mosimane’s contract at Abha Club in the Saudi Pro League officially expires at the end of June, making him a free agent.

While he may be available, he necessarily isn’t easily affordable to many, as recent reports indicate that he was earning R1,55 million a month when he was at Sundowns in 2020.

Can Kaizer Chiefs afford Mosimane?

GOAL recently listed a number of clubs that could afford to hire the South African tactician, with the Amakhosi making the list.

While the R2 million mark may seem steep, Jingles may also take a pay cut to join a local team.

City Press also noted that the former Al Ahly boss hinted that he could return to the country when he stated that Premier Soccer League clubs could afford him.

Mosimane comments on vacant Chiefs post

Sports Brief previously reported on Mosimane giving Kaizer Chiefs fans hope that he could still sign up in future.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns boss spoke about the vacant post and refused to rule himself out of the running.

He added that he was waiting to hear more from his management team and wanted to know the club’s ambitions.
