The 56-year-old admitted to struggling to come to terms with his departure from Sundowns, a team he has coached for eight years winning five league titles along the way.

Mosimane went on to says he needed a new challenge that would push him out of his comfort zone.

“It is said to go because I had more plans for Mamelodi Sundowns football club but the universe has just offered me a new challenge,” said Mosimane in a video posted on his social media account.

“While I had four years remaining on my contract with Sundowns this offer would have not come to me if I was not part of the Sundowns team that won the Caf Champions League (in 2016).”
