"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," he said.

Mosimane has transformed Sundowns to be one of the feared teams in Africa and being the best coach in South Africa, he believes the next contract that he gets from the club must reflect that.

Both parties are still trying to agree terms before the 55-year-old coach commits to ending his remarkable coaching career at Chloorkop.

"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," he explained.

"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, especially when you all want to be together."
