Earlier this season, Mosimane was the preferred choice, but since then, he has moved down the wish list, with names such as former Nigerian boss Jose Peseiro moving ahead of him.

A source told KickOff:

“At the moment, it will definitely be a foreign coach [taking over at Chiefs]. There’s no other local profile that can go there except Pitso [Mosimane].”

While his future is uncertain, Mosimane is working hard to save Abha FC from Saudi Pro League relegation, as the club sits one point above the drop zone with seven games left.

A foreign option might be best, says fans

Local football fans think the Chiefs will be better off with a foreign coach, as Mosimane will come with too much history due to his connections with Mamelodi Sundowns.

Vuyani Monelo says Chiefs had a chance to sign Mosimane:

"Before Pitso Mosimane took the offer to save that Arab team from relegation, he was available. No offer was made to him to coach Kaizer Chiefs. The management, instead of being part of a solution, is part of the problem because the team is in a 9-year trophy drought. The worst-case scenario is not being taken in a serious light and repeating the same mistakes. There's a catchphrase that says only a fool won't change his mind; instead, what's undesirable doesn't lead to undeniable or undisputed."

Kasienova Lycan jokes that Chiefs are aiming higher:

"Kaizer Chiefs have given up on Pitso because they are pursuing Jose Mourinho."

"I don't think Chiefs need a person who is part of the problem. Chiefs should hire a foreign coach who will do the job."

Albell Square says there is an old option:

"Zwane must come back but be more stringent. Security should be available at all times."
