Kaizer Chiefs missed a chance to sign Pitso Mosimane. The best coach in South Africa signed a new contract with Mamelodi Sundowns leaving other clubs which were hoping to grab him in tears . Clubs like Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates would not hesitate to sign Pitso if they could get a gap . It took longer than expected Pitso to sign a new contract that is why many people though that Downs were thinking of getting a new coach. Many people believe that Pitso is South Africa’s pep guardiola.
“I’m honoured and humbled to be given another opportunity to lead Mamelodi Sundowns,” said Mosimane as quoted from Sundowns’ official website.
“One of the main reasons for me to renew my contract with Mamelodi Sundowns is the President’s trust and faith in me, he trusted me to lead this team to where it is – and fulfill his wish to build a team to conquer Africa. It’s humbling to be part of a brand like Sundowns and contribute to its success, especially as a local coach and also having played for the team.”
“To go on and be the longest serving coach at the club is something special and that means we have a lot of things we have done together and the best is yet to come. The Sky Is The Limit”
“I believe it’s important for a club like Sundowns to constantly challenge for the Absa Premiership and CAF competitions, we need to win the Champions League – and it’s a big thing. No one wins it easily, we are focused on this.”
“I want to achieve success in the MTN 8 which remains the only trophy I have not won with Sundowns, throw it in there with the Champions League where we’ve experienced fixture clashes with the MTN 8 in the past. If you recall, we’ve previously never had a pre-season ahead of the MTN 8 – we are always a week behind. It will be very interesting to look at this differently, especially with the CAF and PSL schedules now aligned.”
“We need to keep promoting young talent from our development. We have been successful in the past, that’s what I want to see happening more. Bringing Percy Tau up from our Youth Development and seeing him flourish in Europe is incredible.”
“We have done well, by promoting players through the ranks and we need to expose them to European markets.”
“Motjeka Madisha, Siphelele Mkhulise, Keletso Makgalwa and Nicholus Lukhubeni need to be playing for Sundowns. There’s Harold Majadibodu and Abram Ngcobo, I want them to be playing for the Senior Team.”
“We now have Jose Ramon working with the youth teams, putting structure at the club and we should have more players coming through the system,” said Mosimane of the Spaniard who will assume the role of Head of Technical at the club” Pitso added.
