Mosimane, Benni McCarthy and Gavin Hunt’s names were thrown in the hat to take over the job after Stuart Baxter resigned as Bafana Bafana coach last week.

However, Mosimane, who led Bafana between 2010 and 2012, says he is not interested in the Bafana coaching job.

“We need to move on and find another coach. Stuart Baxter has resigned, so getting an interim coach (Molefi Ntseki) is a good one, he knows what needs to be done to take the process forward. As for me I’m not interested in the job,” Mosimane told the Daily Sun.

“We have the likes of Benni McCarthy and Gavin Hunt. Maybe we should give it to Hunt, he has shown interest in the job previously and he wants it. I have a contract at Downs and I have not broken a contract before. I’m also going to Africa with Downs. I had an unbelievable experience at Bafana, but it’s time for somebody to come in not me.”
