Pitso Mosimane is seeking a new job after an unsuccessful spell at Abha Club in Saudi Arabia.

The Mamelodi Sundowns legend was unable to save the club from relegation following defeat in the final game of the 2023/24 season.

The CAF Champions League winner has broken his silence about his future and disclosed where he would love to coach next.

The veteran coach was linked with the Kaizer Chiefs role, but it seems Nasreddine Nabi will be the one to take the reins at Naturena.

Mosimane speaks on his future

The former Al Ahly coach said there's nothing else for him to do in the DStv Premiership. Mosimane won four PSL titles with Masandawana, per Transfermarkt.

“Next at my age, it’s no longer about trying to win the DStv Premiership five times in a row. I have done that. What else do I want to do here? To prove what?,” he told iDiski Times.

He added that the quality in Saudi Arabia is tempting.

“I have always liked to be curious, I’ve always jumped. So, I needed to know what North Africa was about, so I went to North Africa. I went to the Gulf in Saudi, Emirates, back to Saudi. Maybe Qatar? Maybe Saudi again?"
“If you asked me and I had a choice, Saudi again. That’s big football, you’re up against Sadio Mane, and Yannick Carrasco, there are top players there. And they bring top coaches, and personnel...that’s where I want to stay, where I want to be.”

It will be interesting to see where one of Africa's best coaches lands in the coming months.

Kaizer Chiefs told to appoint Pitso Mosimane

Sports Brief earlier reported on Muhsin Ertugral telling Kaizer Chiefs to appoint Pitso Mosimane instead of Nasreddine Nabe.

Ertugral, who coached Chiefs for two different spells, believes Mosimane is well conversant with the league and the team and will fit in seamlessly.
