Downs Want Pitso For Foreseeable Future

Mamelodi Sundowns coach, Pitso Mosimane, looks set to extend his stay with the Chloorkop-based outfit, following a successful three-and-a-half-year spell.

'Jingles' was appointed head coach of The Brazilians almost three and half years ago, when he took over from Dutch legend, Johan Neeskens.

Mosimane’s impact was immediate as he turned the team’s fortunes around and in his first full season in charge clinched the league title for the Tshwane giants.

The former Bafana Bafana mentor has since gone on to put together, arguably, the most formidable squad in the PSL.

Under his reign, Downs have enjoyed success on the domestic front and have made it no secret that they have what it takes to tackle the continent's finest in the CAF Champions League.

Mosimane will see his contract with Downs expire at the end of this season, however the crew has been informed that the Brazilians have every intention of extending his stay beyond the 2015/16 season.

While the Downs coach has faced his fair shares of criticism over the last 12 months, he does have the club management's backing and it is almost certain that the 51-year-old will be with the side for the foreseeable future, as a new three-year contract is on the table that will see him at the club until 2019.

“He is the coach they want to keep for a long time. They have already tabled another three years and, from the way things look, both parties involved are happy with the new deal and it's expected to go through any time soon… before the season ends,” the source revealed.
