Ntseki Gets Tips From Pitso On New Bafana Role

A former Bafana Bafana coach himself, Pitso Mosimane this week offered some words of wisdom to newly appointed national team mentor, Molefi Ntseki.

Mosimane was asked by journalists whether he backed the decision taken by the SAFA hierarchy at the weekend and if he had any tips for the new permanent coach.

“He just has to manage the egos in the squad, manage the pressure from the public and he must select the right team. That is how you get the accolades,” said ‘Jingles’.

Mosimane had thrown his weight behind local coaches Gavin Hunt, Benni McCarthy and Ntseki ahead of the meeting at SAFA House on Saturday, where the association said the new man was unanimously picked by a four-man technical committee.

The Downs coach had effectively ruled himself out of the running for the job. He did admit that the appointment took him a little by surprise.

“Maybe a little unexpected, but why not? We have to have a coach, I don’t like this interim thing. Somebody has to be appointed, we can’t dilly dally. We have to appoint a coach and we have Afcon and World Cup qualifiers coming,” Mosimane told journalists.  

“The guy has been there for a long time at SAFA and he knows the youth structures there. Some of the senior team players who were there he coached them. He hasn’t done bad, he took us to the (youth) World Cup. Why don’t we give him a chance? Who do we want then? I am happy it’s a local coach, a good guy. I know him well. He has already spoken to me and I am glad to support him, and help him whichever way. I am not unhappy with this appointment. For me, it’s okay.”
