Premiership

Pitso Mosimane says he is ready to sign a new contract with Mamelodi Sundowns at any time if the clauses are right.

Mosimane and Sundowns are currently engaged in negotiations over a new deal as his current contract is set to expire at the end of the season.

The former Bafana Bafana coach has made it known that he wants to stay at Chloorkop but all will depend on the contract talks with the club bosses.

"Simple, I want to stay. I am here to stay," said Mosimane.

"Let the contract be right, I will sign tomorrow, don't think about it. I will sign tomorrow. Let the clauses be right, let the principles be right."

The 2016 CAF Coach of the Year is reportedly earning close to R800 000 per month at Sundowns including bonuses and his salary could increase to R1-million per month if he receives a new package.

"It's a business also," he added.

"Sundowns can say 'we love you but we can't pay what you think you deserve'. You may never know."

'Jingles' has previously revealed that he turned down a massive offer from Qatar and has rejected the advances of other African clubs to stay in the past, and at this stage of his career he is not motivated solely by money.

"I didn't take offers from big teams in South Africa. I didn't take offers from big teams in Africa. I had an offer on the table from Qatar. More money than Sundowns. I stayed because I wanted to honour my contract. I stayed without looking at the money," he said recently.

"They always say loyalty doesn't pay the bills. I didn't take the offers. I stayed. They say it will follow success, simple as that. The club is celebrating its 50th anniversary and I wanted to make a commitment to be part of that."
