Pitso Mosimane says he was "humbled" to hear his name being sung by the Mamelodi Sundowns supporters, but insists he has not been approached by the Tshwane giants.

Mosimane has been out of a job since his sacking as Bafana Bafana coach in June, although reports have suggested the 48-year-old could be in line to succeed Johan Neeskens at Chloorkop.

The former South Africa boss has also been tipped with taking over from Orlando Pirates tactician Augusto Palacios following the Buccaneers' woeful start to the season.

However, while Mosimane is pleased to have been recognised by the Sundowns fans, he remains adamant that no approach has been made for his services by any PSL club.

"I was not at Sundowns' game, I only heard from one of the journalists that Sundowns supporters were chanting my name," Mosimane told The Sowetan.

"I know there is also a rumour about Pirates. I will be honest with you, I'm humbled to have my name linked to two giants of soccer in Sundowns and Pirates, but I know nothing.

"I have not spoken to any PSL clubs. It feels good to be recognised and that there are people out there who believe that I can add value.

"I have been focusing on the SAB Regional League coaches' workshop. The workshop is for coaches from all nine provinces who gained promotion to the Second Division League.

"It is a project that I do jointly with the University of Johannesburg."
