Neeskens Out, Mosimane In
02 December 2012
The Siya crew can exclusively reveal that coach Johan Neeskens has been sacked by Mamelodi Sundowns, and will be replaced by Pitso Mosimane.
It was reported earlier today on the Soccer-Laduma web and mobi-site that Sundowns president, Patrice Motsepe, had called an urgent meeting with the Downs playing staff and the technical team.
A source informed the Siya crew that changes were expected to be made within the Sundowns setup following today’s meeting at Chloorkop. One source had explained that Neeskens’ exit was wanted by a number of the squad members, while another source said that the Dutchman would continue in his role as head coach.
However, with the latest information received by the Siya crew, high ranking officials within the Brazilians camp have revealed that the former Barcelona midfielder has been shown the exit door by the club.
The source added that former Bafana Bafana coach, Mosimane, will be appointed as Neeskens’ successor. Mosimane’s appointment is expected to be made within the next few days, although could be made as early as today.
