Pitso Flirts With Sundowns Exit?

Pitso Mosimane says that he’s still not decided whether or not to leave Mamelodi Sundowns and take a sabbatical, saying that he has to look after himself.

Masandawana have had almost no break over the last few years as they fought valiantly both domestically and on the continent in the CAF Champions League, with their hard work being rewarded with numerous trophies – including the ‘big fish’ of the CAF Champions League.

Now, with another gruelling CCL campaign underway, ‘Jingles’ believes that he may have to follow in the footsteps of Pep Guardiola and take some time out.

He told the media after being crowned as the PSL’s Coach of the Season, “We’ll see… Next week I'll be in Morocco doing my Pro-License Module 2, and then I have to go to the World Cup for about seven days. When I am back, what happens? Pre-season. Maybe if I take a week off, then I can give a better answer about whether I need a sabbatical or not,” he said.

“Our challenge is that we must replace those who leave. We have no excuse because we have back-to-back Champions League and the (domestic) league. This is what contributes to me being tired. I won’t have a life because I have got to make sure Sundowns remains where it is.

“The team has to be at the top every year, and who needs to replace players who leave? Nobody but me. Somewhere, somehow, I’ve got to look after myself.”

His exit would no doubt be a big loss for Masandawana given the huge success that they have achieved since his arrival, although he has been given Patrice Motsepe’s blessing to take some time if that’s what he needs.
