Pitso Mosimane’s future at Mamelodi Sundowns was shifted into a bit of doubt around two weeks ago after his team fell to dramatic 5-0 defeat and conceded the league title to Chiefs, but will Downs’ qualification to the Nedbank Cup final prolong his stay?
The boisterous tactician’s job at Chloorkop has been a huge topic of discussion over the past week or so and this is largely due to the fact that the club has little left to play for.
With early elimination from the CAF Champions League, along with failing to win the Telkom Knockout and the MTN8, as well as successfully defend the PSL title, there were reports that Pitso could be on his way out…
A lot was riding on the outcome of Sundowns’ semi-final encounter against Vasco Da Gama in the Nedbank Cup semi-final, and after qualifying for the final by virtue of a narrow 1-0 scoreline, Pitso may have prolonged his stay.
The Brazilians will take on Ajax Cape Town in the final on May 16, where it has been speculated that Patrice Motsepe will allow Jingles to stay on should he win the trophy.
Sundowns are a team of champions, and a season with no silverware will not bode well for the coach and his future… Therefore, a win is a must for him!
Masandawana, do you think winning the Nedbank Cup will secure Pitso’s future at the club for next season?
