“The question is, is he ready? Does he want it? Because I’ve never heard him say he wants it. I’ve been watching the television interviews; he never said I want it. It was vacant; it was open. He never said he wants it, but because I know him, he is modest. But take it if you want it. Show that you want it,” he said.

As reported by The South African, Mosimane added that he was happy for Arthur Zwane because he was a local coach in charge of a big South African team. Mosimane has often advocated for local coaches in the Premier Soccer League.

He admitted that it would be a tough task for Zwane to bring Chiefs back to glory days, as Stuart Baxter and Steve Komphela had failed, but that he needed to do more to achieve it.
