Mosimane responds to Kaizer Chiefs links after Abha exit – ‘It is a question of what they have’

Pitso Mosimane rarely goes for long before getting an offer thanks to his success both in Africa and abroad.

His recent assignment was to keep Abha in the Saudi Pro League after a poor start, but the mission failed on the final day after a 2-1 loss to Al-Hazem, who had been relegated already.

Jingles, as he is commonly referred to, stirred excitement with a cryptic message suggesting he might contemplate taking a Kaizer Chiefs job. The post fell vacant following Molefi Ntseki's dismissal, with Cavin Johnson, who had been given the mandate to steer the team on an interim basis, failing to convince the management that he was worthy of the job.

In the concluded 2023/24 campaign, the Glamour Boys finished 10th, their worst-ever finish in the Premier Soccer League. 

It justifies the fans' demands to have a better coach who can streamline the structures at Naturena and help the team get back to its glory days.


The Kaizer Chiefs project – What does Mosimane think?

The three-time Caf Champions League winner conceded he has numerous offers when asked about the Amakhosi links by SNL24 and revealed the criteria he employs before deciding to take a job or otherwise.

“Look, there's always a team to coach,” the former Mamelodi Sundowns coach responded to the Glamour Boys' rumours.

“There was a team whilst we were still busy with Abha, there was a team after Abha, there was a team yesterday. There's always a team, it is about which team? Why this team and why not that team?

“There are teams in the Middle East, in the USA, in South Africa, and North Africa.

“Remember, there is Tunisia, Algeria, Egypt, and all that. We have stepped in all those places. So there is always a team but it is a question of which one, where, and what they have.”


If Mosimane chooses Chiefs, what should the management expect?

Mosimane has a team he works with meaning Amakhosi will not be at liberty to decide who will help the 59-year-old at the club.

The tactician will also need a hefty budget to enable him to have players that can fit into his style. 

Questions have been raised about the attitude and mental strength of the current Amakhosi players. The majority will most probably be shipped out, while others might be sent out on loan.
