Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says he’d never be able to coach at a club that has no ambitions of winning the CAF Champions League.
Since arriving at Sundowns in 2012, the former Bafana Bafana coach has been able to transform the club into one of the best and most respected on the continent.
They won the Champions League in 2016, beating Zamalek, and have recorded some memorable victories in the competition, including a 5-0 mauling of Egyptian giants Al Ahly, the most successful club in African football history, in Atteridgeville last season.
Mosimane loves the adventure of playing in the Champions League and would not want to work in an environment which does not have the same vision as him.
“I don’t know if you remember my very first interview. What brought me to Sundowns is that the team believes in the Champions League, that’s one of the most important things. I knew that this was a sleeping giant and it has done well we’ve turned things around,” Mosimane said.
“I don’t know if I’ll go coach a club that doesn’t want to win Champions League. So that club does not have an ambition to win the [local] league, and does not have an ambition to be second on the league and does not have an ambition to win Nedbank. I mean where are we now?”
