Morrocan giants, Wydad Casablanca are reportedly keeping a close tap on Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane.
Wydad are on the hunt for a new coach after sacking Frenchman Sebastien Desabre barely 29 days after his appointment.
He won the 2016 CAF Champions League with Mamelodi Sundowns after defeating Egypt’s Zamalek 3-1 on aggregate. Making them the 2nd South African side to win it after Orlando Pirates in 1995.
In December 2016, Mosimane was ranked as the 10th best coach in the world for 2016, according to the International Federation of Football History and Statistics (IFFHS).
On 5 January 2017, Mosimane won the Coach of the Year accolade at the 2016 Glo-CAF awards in Abuja, Nigeria after guiding Mamelodi Sundowns to league glory in 2015/16 and claiming the Telkom Knockout trophy which meant Mosimane stood alone as the only coach to have made a clean sweep of all domestic trophies in the PSL era.
Mosimane is one of the longest serving and highly rated coaches in South African football, having won several major trophies with SuperSport United between 2001 and 2007.
He served as the care-taker coach of South Africa for seven games during 2007, before Carlos Alberto Parreira was appointed as head coach. He then served as an assistant coach to Parreira, and Joel Santana with South Africa.
