Mamelodi Sundowns

Alleged Discord Between Downs’ Trio Of Coaches

There’s an alleged discord between the Mamelodi Sundowns trio of coaches, the Siya crew has been led to believe.

According to reliable sources, Manqoba Mngqithi, Rulani Mokwena and Steve Komphela aren’t seeing eye to eye despite the success of winning the inaugural DStv Premiership title last season in the first year of the new-look technical team arrangement.

Following the shock departure of Pitso Mosimane to Al Ahly almost 12 months ago, Sundowns opted to appoint his two assistants – Mngqithi and Mokwena, as co-coaches, with Komphela later brought in as senior coach and reporting to the duo.

In a club statement at the time, then club president Patrice Motsepe made a disclaimer that Mngqithi would have the final say where there isn’t consensus.

Soccer Laduma has it on good authority that there are now factions between the trio, which is no surprise, given that no three coaches could ever completely be in agreement all the time.

Through the club, Mngqithi, Mokwena and Komphela were asked to comment days before the story went to print, however the Siya crew were not offered a reply. 

The Siya crew has unpacked what we’ve been told in Issue 1240 of our print edition that was published on Wednesday.

You can grab a copy to find out the following:

  • What’s led to the apparent discord
  • An incident believed to have taken place at training
  • What the hierarchy told the coaches
  • Komphela’s Pirates talks

And more….
