Mamelodi Sundowns

‘Mosimane Is Made To Beg’ – Ex Downs Director Speaks!

A former director of football at Mamelodi Sundowns has urged the club to conclude it’s contract negotiations with coach Pitso Mosimane because of his unprecedented success since being appointed there in December 2012. 

With Mosimane edging ever closer to the expiry of his current contract and advanced talks between the parties dragging, Mike Ntombela took to Facebook to voice his opinion on the ongoing saga at Chloorkop.

He wrote: “Mamelodi Sundowns FC please sign a contract with our Coach Pitso Mosimane. Mosimane has been the most successful coach at Mamelodi Sundowns FC and any South African Professional Soccer League (PSL) team in the past decade from 2010 until now.”

Ntombela pointed to Mosimane’s personal record and Downs’ trophy cabinet since ‘Jingles’ returned to the club he once played for as coach to argue why a contract extension was a no-brainer for those in charge.

“What surprises me is that Mosimane is made to beg with such a track record obviously because he is black,” wrote Ntombela.

“All Mosimane is asking for according to media is that Sundowns include that he can do development outside the club whilst he is at Sundowns. After that there were figures which Mosimane has been presumed to have asked for, these figures are meagre given the value of Mosimane’s worth world-wide. When one reaches 50-60 years of age that person wants to do what he likes and want to be remembered by having done that. Please allow Mosimane to do that and sign his contract as he will still be wholly committed to Sundowns.”

Ntombela went as far as suggesting Mosimane should be given the powers to not only employ members of his technical staff, but a technical director of his choice.

“I write this article not because I want employment from Mosimane or Sundowns. I have passed that stage of being employed, no one can afford me. I enjoy what I’m doing in development. I’m changing lives of people. Please allow Pitso to do development and sign his contract,” he stated further on Facebook.
