However, the Al Ahly manager will not come cheap in case Mosimane considers a return to the national team bench.

He is currently in charge of African giants but the Twitter community is already lambasting the team's failure to book a spot in Cameroon and they have their preferred candidate.

@JustJamal said:

“If you all want Doctor Khumalo to be appointed as Bafana Bafana coach, we might as well put Phumudzo Manenzhe in the mix. Arthur Zwane /Pitso.”

@Sundowns_Solo responded and seems to agree with the idea of having the four-time Premier Soccer League winner with Mamelodi Sundowns:

“Pitso Mosimane can actually coach Al Ahly and Bafana Bafana simultaneously...”

@Tebogo_maseng replied:

“Leave coach Pitso Mosimane alone, you will only going get him look useless, deal with SAFA.”

@ShakesRampedi decided to show sportsmanship:

“Congratulations to Sudan for qualifying for the #AFCON2021 You deserved it and wanted it more than Bafana Bafana This is embarrassing. Honestly...I have not been impressed with Molefi Ntseki during his reign as Bafana Bafana coach. Too many holes and questions. I don't think he's the right man to take us forward.”
