Sundowns extend contract of South African ‘Fergie’ in mega deal

Former African champions Mamelodi Sundowns have extended the contract of coach Pitso Mosimane, who is commonly referred to as the 'Sir Alex Ferguson' of South Africa. While no salary was disclosed for the four-year deal, club owner Patrice Motsepe said it would make the former national team forward one of the best paid coaches across the continent. "I had to visit the bank manager and request an overdraft extension," joked mining magnate Motsepe, a billionaire who is among the five richest South Africans.
