Pitso Mosimane’s outlook on a return to Bafana Bafana has not changed and the Al Ahly coach remains steadfast that he is not interested in working for the SA Football Association (Safa)‚ a source close to the coach has revealed.

Mosimane, who plotted Sundowns’ 2016 Caf Champions League success‚ had previously indicated he was not interested in a return to Bafana.

“And he would never do it [take the job]‚” the source said. “I asked him‚ and he said‚ ‘Nope‚ I won’t’.”The source said Mosimane’s ambitions at present are further than South Africa‚ or Bafana.“It would be the same thing as asking Percy Tau to come and play for Kaizer Chiefs. Once you go to Belgium or wherever‚ then you will come back to hang your boots here [in SA].”

The source said even if Mosimane lost his job at Ahly, he would probably view the Middle East as his next logical career progression.Mosimane had previously stated‚ in a press conference soon after Ntseki’s predecessor‚ Stuart Baxter‚ had resigned as Bafana coach‚ that he would not return to the Bafana coaching job. headtopics.com

In a famous quote‚ the outspoken then-Sundowns coach‚ when asked what his reaction would be if he was approached by Safa‚ said in August 2019: “I have done Bafana. I was there for five years. And I have benefited a lot at Safa.“I have been on the bench against Portugal‚ Germany‚ Spain. Safa took me to Germany for two months to learn.

“What was not nice was the way it happened when they sacked me. I don’t believe a coach after two years‚ who loses two games‚ should be fired.“And it was sad to be fired by a taxi owner [then-Safa technical committee chairman Fanyana Sibanyoni]‚ a priest [then-CEO Robin Petersen] and by a traditional chief [then-vice president Chief Mwelo Nonkonyana].

“ ... At Sundowns my fate is on the pitch. My results keep me here. So‚ I mean‚ once bitten twice shy. I don’t want to have my fate under those people.”Mosimane took over from Swiss Rene Weiler at Ahly in the Covid-19-extended 2019-20 Egyptian season and oversaw the clinching of a treble.

Safa has no long term plan .The national team should be built on stages not like microwave approach. I agree with Pitso to not entertain to be short listed and automatically be come a national coach.
