Mosimane to be sacked
Teko Modise recalls the time Mamelodi Sundowns fans wanted Pitso Mosimane to be sacked.
Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Teko Modise recalls a time at the start of last season .
When the supporters wanted Pitso Mosimane out of the club and “wanted to kill the coach”.
How times have changed.
After a poor start to the 2015/16 season Sundowns went on to sweep all before them .
En route to a record-breaking Absa Premiership title triumph.
The Brazilians also have one foot in the CAF Champions League semi-finals .
And are looking like a dominant force in Africa, let alone the PSL.
I remember one match when the supporters wanted to kill the coach because they wanted him to go.
Modise recalls in the latest KICK OFF magazine.
I think it was against Ajax at home. That was the turning point for us as we started picking up points we started getting stronger as a team; individuals started showing up – Khama, Keagan, Castro, Kekana – all the top players that were very, very key to us started showing up.
“We started having a good team and we became stronger and stronger as we played.”
Sundowns’ next Champions League game is against Enyimba of Nigeria on August 23, which pushes back the start of their 2016/17 league season to August 28 against SuperSport United.
