South African coach Pitso Mosimane seems to be a topic of discussion almost every season.

Whether Mosimane is in a job or not, there seems to be speculation of where his next job will be.

Mosimane is currently the head coach of Abha Club in the Saudi Arabia topflight. He joined the club on a short-term contract. He was also appointed during the middle of the season, with the club hoping he saves them from relegation. His agent and wife Moira Tlhagale stated clearly to his current club that he is there temporarily.

Tlhagale did, however, state that Mosimane would be willing to sit down and re-negotiate with Abha should they avoid relegation. She also explained that although the ambition was to coach a national team, the door wasn’t shut on other clubs. One of those clubs that was recently credited with an interest is Wydad Casablanca

Wydad recently added Mosimane to their list, as they look to compete with Kaizer Chiefs for his signature. According Sport 7 as per Soccer-Laduma


“talks have begun between Tlhagale and president of the record Botola Pro champions, Abdelmajid El Bernaki, but discussions over a possible contract are now said to have hit a snag as they are unable to reach an agreement over his salary. The same report claims that, in Saudi Arabia, the former Mamelodi Sundowns tactician is currently getting paid approximately 130 million centimes (R27.4 million) per month, but that the Red Castle and its chief are only willing to pay the Kagiso native 40 million centimes (R8.4 million). It is believed that Mosimane’s representative does not think this is enough for a manager that has won two CAF Champions League titles.” Wrote the publication.

It will be interesting to see where Mosimane ends up at the end of the season. But with reports that Chiefs and Wydad want him back on the continent, he sure isn’t short of options.
