Pitso On Course For African Glory

Pitso Mosimane is on course to re-write the African football history books. The Mamelodi Sundowns coach has been dealing with a tight calendar, but has managed to reach two cup finals in the space of a couple days.

Ever since taking charge of Mamelodi Sundowns, Jingles has been re-writing history books in SA football. Now he's venturing throughout Africa, and is only two games away to change South Africa’s drought in African soccer. The last time SA had a club winning the CAF Champions League was in 1995, when Orlando Pirates won the title and earned themselves a gold star.

Since then no other team has won the star, even though Downs and Bucs have reached the final since the inception of the PSL. Sundowns were tasked with overcoming a 2-1 defeat away to Zesco United, and did it in style on the weekend. Jingles' troops went on to win 2-0, cruising to the final with a 3-2 aggregate score.

The current Mamelodi Sundowns is the greatest side in ages, and are in a good position to claim a golden star. The side is blessed with abundant of talent, and are playing top class football. If Pitso and his troops play it right, SA will be in the spotlight once again. Currently there's no a better team in the PSL than Masandawana.

I can't wait to see a glittering gem above Downs symbol soon. The team's rich vein of form put them in the right place to claim the number one spot in the African club rankings, and there's no other coach capable of re-writing our history books other than SA's 'The Special One'.

Having said that, do you think there's anything that could stop Downs from winning the Champions League?
