The Secret To Sundown’s Success in Africa – Reader’s Voice

Listening to one of my football mentors, Coach Pitso Mosimane, one can see why the team has been so successful and also even more respected than ever before. Yes the team assembled with plenty of talent but the most vital factor in their armour in fact is not their style of play , or the abundance of well established stars.

The amount of money they put into the club is not the turning factor, even though it plays a role in their success. The pivotal change between Downs and others in South African football teams is and will always remain the mentality.

Do you want to represent your country and compete on the African continent? What is your mindset going into games on the continent? The secret is definitely their mentality to want to win everything and everyone because they have that belief that the coach himself has instilled at Chloorkop.

And that culture spreads throughout the team. Which creates an environment to thrive and develop players to export as proven before. The love that he gets from Northern Africa speaks volumes about the integrity and respect that they have for him and KaboYelow.

Jingles has changed the way we see African club football. By doing so, he is challenging clubs in South Africa to come and emulate the example he has set.
