Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has confirmed that he has been offered a head coaching job by Zamalek last week.

Mosimane, however, says although he is flattered by the approach of Egyptian giants, he is happy at Sundowns even though he continues to work without a contract following a deadlock with the management on clauses on a new deal.

Mosimane’s four-year deal with Sundowns expired at the end of June. It is understood that the former Bafana Bafana coach is yet to sign a new deal with the Brazilians.

“It’s true that Zamalek made the approach, but I was absolutely flattered. I was honest with them – telling them I have a job at Sundowns for now. I told them it won’t be easy for me to just up and leave,” Mosimane told The Sowetan.

“They told me they wanted someone who understands their team. They could hear in media interviews that I know them in and out.

“I played them four times. I know their most influential players, their strengths and weaknesses. But I’m emotionally attached to Sundowns. It took me some time to build this team, and I’m still trying to strengthen it to get to the level of TP Mazembe, Zamalek and Al Ahly.”

Zamalek parted with their coach Moeman Soliman following their defeat to Sundowns in the Champions League final.
