Suggestions are that the former Golden Arrows mentor would only stay with the African champions until after their current Caf Champions League campaign.

Mnqithi’s name has previously been bandied about as a possible replacement for Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela. Mngqithi, like most Sundowns players, is allegedly fed-up with Pitso Mosimane’s strict rules.
