Speaking to the media, Mosimane revealed that he always asks his players what they want to accomplish on the African continent, should they not be able to play abroad.
“I will always tell players, my guys, we are in for a short time in football. Time goes past us, but I always ask them, a player like Vila (Sibusiso Vilakazi), if you are not going to have the opportunity to play in Europe or probably maybe later, what would you like to do whilst you are in South Africa? Not only him as a player but any player in Africa, what would you like to do?” Mosimane revealed to the media.
The head coach then went on to say that being a player at Sundowns, means that you are able to accomplish everything to offer on the African continent.
“We want to win the league, we want to win the Champions League, we want to win the Super Cup, you want to play in the FIFA World Cup, (and) you want to play for Bafana Bafana. What else?
“That’s why he (Vilakazi) came to Mamelodi Sundowns and he won't regret that, that is the level, there is nothing bigger than that in the continent, what else can you get? So he is fortunate, he is in the right club, in the right space.
“Other cups you can always win here, those ones they come by every day, every year, but these special ones come once in a while. If you ask (Lionel) Messi in Europe what does he want to achieve? He wants to win the Champions League, he wants to win the league, Super Cup, World Cup with his country, and he wants to win the FIFA World Cup Club tournament. It is the same,” he added.
