What makes Pitso Unique ?
The mood was easy, cheerful, grateful, filled with expectation and ambition. This was the atmosphere in the KaboYellow Press Conference. If you didn't know what Masandawana was about then you surely do now.
The announcement of the contract extension of the former Bafana Bafana coach did not come as a surprise. Jingles has truly become a resource that the Brazilians cannot lose. He knows exactly what the team needs. Not only regarding recruitment but also the nature in which he speaks or approaches players. This is something that not all coaches have. It's easy to have a philosophy and culture but to carry it over in a way that's relatable and comforting is the secret. Many top coaches have come and gone, with big reputations and pedigree in terms of their education and presence. But Sir Pitso stands head and shoulders above because he understands the profile and behavior of our local players. Yes he has the tools, backing and support to succeed. The technical team works in harmony and cohesion with the youth structure. And the door is always open to those who wants a spot. I think he is a force who has made use of Brazilian and European philosophies but also allows his players to express themselves. The likes of Themba Zwane and Sirino to name a few are not tied down by the the teams way of playing. Finding the balance between the two has played a key role in the functioning of the Club as a whole. All these components work together to the betterment of the club. Let's hope that the Coach can continue to improve, learn and implement more ideas that would see us have more youth coming thru and local players thriving in Europe.
There is such a buzz around Sundowns that makes everyone wanna be a part of it. Something that I cannot see at other clubs. The board, the club and supporters come together in unison to achieve their goals. All hail Sir Pitso Mosimane !!!
