Mamelodi Sundowns Coach Pitso Mosimane has ruled out the possibility of returning to Bafana Bafana for a second spell. This is after Stuart Baxter resigned as a national team coach last week to leave the Bafana coaching post vacant.

Mosimane’s name has been linked a possible replacement for the departed Englishman. He says he is happily contracted at Sundowns.

South African Football Association (Safa) have announced on Saturday that Baxter’s Assistant Coach Molefi Ntseki has been appointed an interim coach until a permanent replacement is appointed.

Ntseki was with Baxter at the recent Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Mosimane also added that he would like to help find a suitable permanent coach for the national team.

Mosimane was with Bafana between 2006 and 2012 as an assistant and head coach. He says the sooner the new coach is appointed the better.

Mosimane has been on record saying that he believes that local coaches such as Gavin Hunt, Benni McCarthy and Steve Komphela are capable of coaching the team.
