KickOFF.com reported that Mosimane's new deal could amount to an astronomical R65-million, based on detail supplied and estimates.

Briefly.co.za understands that the outspoken mentor is believed to be earning approximately R1-million per month.

Mosimane said, "I have been respected on the contract and I am not complaining."
