Motsepe: Mosimane has my support

Pitso Mosimane and Patrice Motsepe celebrate Sundowns league victory

Mamelodi Sundowns president Patrice Motsepe has accepted Pitso Mosimane's resignation, saying he supports the ambition of "the most successful coach in the history of the club."

Mosimane confirmed his departure in a letter to the Brazilians, ahead of a reported move to Egyptian giants Al Ahly.

Times Live reported Motsepe as responding: "Sundowns has been aware of the ongoing discussions between Pitso Mosimane and the Egyptian club and with other North African clubs.

"I have on several occasions over the past few years expressed my support for Pitso Mosimane leaving Sundowns to coach in North Africa or Europe or Bafana Bafana.

"Football players and coaches have at times an uncertain and inconsistent future and must pursue new opportunities where they may grow and receive greater remuneration.

"I have received a warm and emotional note from Pitso and am very proud of his achievements at Mamelodi Sundowns.

"Pitso has been the most successful coach in the history of Sundowns and will always be a member of the Mamelodi Sundowns Family.

"I wish him‚ Moira and his family everything of the very best and I hope to see him coaching in Europe soon."
