Mamelodi Sundowns run the risk of finishing the season without a coach if they don’t tie Pitso Mosimane to a new deal and the league runs into July.

Sundowns are yet to announce an agreement with Mosimane despite months of negotiations, with his current contract set to expire on June 30.

With the current measures at place due to the coronavirus in South Africa, it’s not clear if the Premier Soccer League will be able to complete the season before winter approaches.

The world football governing body FIFA also announced a probe to a possible move not to allow football contracts to expire before seasons complete due the covid-19 pandemic that forced the sporting fraternity to shutdown worldwide.

Under the circumstance, Pitso Mosimane would have to remain at Sundowns despite the contract’s end.

The same tune would have to be sang for Kaizer Chiefs’ George Maluleke who refused to play another season for a little longer in Naturena.

Maluleke is set to join the Brazilians at the end of the season.

Having won multiple domestic cups and also the continent’s CAF Champion League, Pitso Mosimane’s resume is good enough to get a contract in one of the country’s top clubs.
