Best Player-Coach Combinations In The PSL

A good relationship between a player and his coach is often crucial to ensuring a solid and positive atmosphere in the team, but there are some players and coaches who have got along exceptionally well. Can you think of any?

Let's take a look at who they are!

Stuart Baxter – Reneilwe Letsholonyane
The English tactician brought the best out of "Yeye" during his time at Kaizer Chiefs, and they have now rekindled their relationship at SuperSport United.

Roger De Sa – Cecil Lolo
Before Lolo's sad and sudden passing, De Sa and the fullback formed a perfect team. The coach new how to utilise the Ajax Cape Town defender's expertise to full affect, and they could often be found in a warm embrace when celebrating a victory.

Gavin Hunt – Daine Klate
There is no doubt Klate is one of Gavin Hunt's favourite players in the PSL. The tactician brought him to Wits from Orlando Pirates, and they also enjoyed a massive amount of success together during their title-winning campaigns with SuperSport United. 

Pitso Mosimane – Khama Billiat
"Jingles" is largely considered a father figure by many of the players he has coached, but he holds a special bond with the pint-sized Zimbabwean.

Eric Tinkler – Thabo Rakhale
Tinkler was the coach who put his faith in Rakhale, and it paid off. The trickster excelled under the mentor's guidance at Orlando Pirates. 

Steve Komphela – Kennedy Mweene
"Big Steve" is a coach largely admired by many players, but he got along particularly well with Kennedy Mweene when they were at Free State Stars. The duo, with Mweene in goals and Komphela on the sidelines, participated in more than 100 games together.

Gordon Igesund – Lerato Chabangu
"GI" has long been regarded as the coach who resurrected Chabangu's career. The midfielder-cum-striker has followed the former Bafana Bafana boss to three different clubs.
