“Mosimane, Hunt & Tinkler… Local Coaches Proving Their Worth?” – Reader’s Voice

South African elite league was dominated by non-South African coaches years ago, with only smaller teams giving locals a chance, but not anymore as you see Steve Komphela and Pitso Mosimane leading the two biggest teams in Mzansi.

Even though Chiefs are yet to taste silverware under Komphela's guidance, but the Kroonstad born mentor is arguably not to blame, because he works with a very limited squad and less quality in his side. Should he get the same quality that was given to Stuart Baxter, it is without a doubt Steve will soon win trophies.

Pitso Mosimane is already the most successful coach in South Africa, with two league titles, a CAF Champions league and CAF Super Cup title in his rich trophy cabinet. Gavin Hunt is another man who doesn't disappoint his bosses when they’ve invested in him. At SuperSport United, he won three league titles in a row and, now at Bidvest Wits, he is on track to repay his bosses who have shown faith in and support to him when trying to turn Wits into title contenders. Wits invested in Hunt and put him under no pressure, as was the case at SuperSport.

Meanwhile, Eric Tinkler is growing fast and proving to be a good coach already. Tinkler is the most inexperienced coach in the top four, but he has already claimed a continental silver medal, a Telkom Knockout title and has been a strong contender for the league title with a newly formed team.

Should all teams follow in Cape Town City’s footsteps, Fadlu Davids, Lehlohonolo Seema, Dan Malesela, Roger Sikhakhane and Shaun Bartlett can also make it big in the PSL.

Are local coaches proving to be better than non-South Africans? What is your take on Davids and Seema so far?
