South African coach Pitso Mosimane has not set sights on coaching in Europe because he believes the continent is not looking for African coaches.
Mosimane has achieved a lot on the continent, both in his home country and currently with Egyptian giants Al Ahly. He recently picked up a second bronze medal as Ah Ahly, for the second year running, finished third at the Club World Cup.
It was his seventh medal since arriving at Ahly. He has won two CAF Champions League trophies and also claimed CAF Super Cup on two occasions.
Being one of the best brains in Africa, Mosimane, in an interview with Ghanaian sports journalists Yaw Ofosu Larbi and Owuraku Ampofo, was asked if he has received offers from Europe.
He responded, “Europe is not looking for coaches in Africa. I mean it’s a fact, we all know about that. It has never happened. You can say to me that there’s always a first time but let it happen.
“It’s very difficult. Those things don’t happen easily. We have to be realistic. At least we are giving Europe players but when it comes to the coaches I don’t think they are interested.”
The 57-year-old has won 18 trophies since his coaching debut in 2001.
