Mamelodi Sundowns

Downs Coach Makes Call To Club Bosses

Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi has lauded the impact of South African coaches in the CAF Champions League.

There will be four South African coaches in the Champions League group stages this season. Sundowns will be led by Mngqithi and Rulani Mokwena, while AmaZulu and Botswana's Jwaneng Galaxy are coached by Benni McCarthy and Morena Ramoreboli respectively. 

Both AmaZulu and Galaxy have qualified for the group stages for the first time in their history.

"It's exciting, first, to have so many teams competing in the inter-continental competitions and most of them being coached by South African coaches. That on its own is encouraging. To have Jwaneng Galaxy also being coached by one of our own and managing to pull it through against Simba in Tanzania, for me that was a big one. We need to congratulate our coaches when they are doing well. I think there is a significant improvement in our game, from our South African coaches," Mngqithi told media after his side's victory over Maniema Union 

"It's just a wish that one would have, that most of our South African club bosses can start looking around before they can go out and look for imports because we've got so many other coaches who are currently jobless or are working at smaller teams and they need an opportunity. Even in the league it shows how many South African coaches are doing well in that space as we speak."
