Komphela: Pitso Was Right!
Newly-appointed Kaizer Chiefs coach, Steve Komphela has paid tribute to his Mamelodi Sundowns counterpart, Pitso Mosimane.
This follows the Brazilians’ mentor maintaining that both of them are a few of the local coaches who can coach big teams in the Absa Premiership and win the title.
‘Jingles’ has already bagged the league title in the 2013/14 campaign and, Komphela tells the Siya crew that Mosimane was right.
He said it's good to see local coaches taking on the challenge and making things work.
"Yes, Pitso was right. We are from the same school of thought and I agree with him that we have to take up the challenge and prove that we can do it. That's one of the reasons why I agreed to take over the reigns at Chiefs.
“Pitso was right. We need such challenges as local up-and-coming coaches and I am happy the Chiefs family has given me that chance," the former Bafana Bafana captain concluded.
The 2015/16 campaign looks set to be an entertaining one, with local coaches spearheading the Big Three. Eric Tinkler at Orlando Pirates, Pitso Mosimane at Mamelodi Sundowns and now Komphela taking over the hot seat at Naturena.
