Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane admits to having received offers to manage abroad, but insists he is not considering a move away from the Premiership club.

The 53-year-old mentor has won every trophy on offer on the domestic stage whilst at the helm of the Chloorkop based-outfit, while also clinching the CAF Champions League title recently.

The former Bafana Bafana mentor spoke of his plans for the future with Sundowns, highlighting the stability and support structures within the club.

"My phone has been ringing. Sometimes I don't want to talk because this thing can unsettle Sundowns," he told TMG Digital.

"Sundowns love me. And when you are loved, be nice. When you have a nice family look after it. So I'm not listening.

"Because I'm working on this product. I want to come back here (to the CWC) again.

"I need to win the Champions League again to come back."

Despite enjoying a trophy-laden spell with Sundowns, Mosimane is adamant that he can achieve a lot more with the Brazilians. 

"With a mentality like this, a quality like this, the development structures, I think I could come up a lot higher," he added.

"But I'm happy. I have a product here. I have a team that won the Champions League."
