Manqoba Mngqithi said that while the new technical will not want to tamper much with the style of play that Pitso Mosimane led with at Mamelodi Sundowns, certain elements are bound to change.
The Brazilians have made a number of changes following Mosimane’s departure, with Rulani Mokwena and Mngqithi appointed as co-coaches and Steve Komphela as a senior coach who will report to the duo.
However, speaking to the media on Thursday, Mngqithi revealed that as much as things have changed at the Brazilians, they will try their best to more or less maintain the same type of football that was played during Mosimane’s era.
“We would not like to tamper much with what has been happening all along because we have been part of it,” he said.
“But obviously, all coaches have their individual differences, there is always going to be those small elements that will change in the game, the approach and probably the personality of the team and also looking at the number of players that we have, it is most likely that they will also bring a new element in to the game which is why they were brought here.
“One can not say it is going to be exactly the same but we will try as much as we can to make sure that the team plays more or less the same as Coach Pitso era but obviously like I said, there will be changes here and there but they will have to be slowly introduced.
“We are looking to making sure that there is a little bit of continuity even if there are some slight changes but they don’t happen dramatically.”
