On the international football scene, when one thinks of coaches who were destined to manage their teams, one could easily think of Barcelona under Pep Guardiola or Manchester United under Sir Alex Ferguson.
In the same light, I feel Pitso Mosimane was made to coach Mamelodi Sundowns. Here are three reasons why.
He Wears The Badge With Pride
Mosimane is a coach who believes in things he stands for. He also respects the club's culture and dealings. He did not try and change the club's style or philosophy, and neither did he go against the club's signing policy.
Attention To Detail
This is something Pitso is praised for. He breathes football, speaks football and eats football. This is a quality any big club can admire and is key in grinding out results when it matters.
He Brought Back Hope
Let’s be fair and give the man credit, he won our sixth Premier Soccer League trophy last season after many, many years of falling short to the likes of Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs. He most definitely put the club right back on the map in terms of competing for honours.
Do you think Pitso was made for Downs?
