but pitso benefitted - huge sums of money
According to Wikipedia pitso was born in 1964. His behavior typical of a jilted lover does not commensurate his age though.
He played for Cosmos, Sundowns and Pirates. At Pirates he made 18 appearances, no goal. Clearly he was not a regular. In his own language, Pirates did not benefit from him.
He went overseas to join teams unknown in football circles such as Ionikos, Rita Berlaar and Al Sadd. He only fantasized about Man City and Pep Guardiola. As a coach the big team he managed is Bafana which is only followed by Chiefs and Pirates in terms of having high pressure coaching jobs. He dismally failed with him playing for a draw when in fact a victory was required to qualify for 2012 AFCON. Again, SAFA did not benefit from him. Catapulting him as the best coach in SA is disingenuous.
