Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane admits that he is in no rush to sign a new contract as both parties have not reached an agreement yet.

The 55-year-old led his side to their first Telkom Knockout Cup title since 2015 after defeating Maritzburg United 2-1 at the Moses Mabhida Stadium over the weekend.

However, Mosimane is in the final year of his contract with the Tshwane side but is committed to end his career at Chloorkop.

‘It’s the very first time I’m in this position, I’ve never been in this position before. I’ve been here for seven years, I’ve had two contracts and it was never an issue. I’ve always signed any time and any day,’ Mosimane told the media.

‘I don’t think you have ever heard me before stealing a contract, but I’m 55 and want to go until 60. This is too stressful for me, I can’t be having this stress all the time, so it’s my last contract and I think it must be worth it the last contract.

‘I’m here, I love Mamelodi Sundowns, Sundowns loves me, they want me to stay, I want to stay and the team has also approached me and said ‘coach, we want you to stay’ so we love each other. It’s a matter of hugs and all that.

‘We haven’t reached an agreement. We were talking but we haven’t reached an agreement so there’s no rush neh, especially when you all want to be together,’ he concluded.
