Mamelodi Sundowns

Pitso: I Need To Learn From Pep And Klopp

Pitso Mosimane put pen to paper on a new four-year deal with Mamelodi Sundowns and the head coach is now hungrier than ever to continue bringing success to the club.

The Siya crew broke the news earlier this month that – after ongoing talks and twists and turns in his contract negotiations – Mosimane and Sundowns had finally come to an agreement.

However, the club’s president, Patrice Motsepe only confirmed the news yesterday, May 21, finally putting to bed all speculation about Mosimane’s future.

“I’m honoured and humbled to be given another opportunity to lead Mamelodi Sundowns,” Mosimane said, as quoted from Sundowns’ official website.

“One of the main reasons for me to renew my contract with Mamelodi Sundowns is the President’s trust and faith in me, he trusted me to lead this team to where it is – and fulfill his wish to build a team to conquer Africa. It’s humbling to be part of a brand like Sundowns and contribute to its success, especially as a local coach and also having played for the team.

“To go on and be the longest serving coach at the club is something special and that means we have a lot of things we have done together and the best is yet to come. The Sky Is The Limit. 

“I believe it’s important for a club like Sundowns to constantly challenge for the Absa Premiership and CAF competitions, we need to win the Champions League – and it’s a big thing. No one wins it easily, we are focused on this. 

“I want to achieve success in the MTN 8 which remains the only trophy I have not won with Sundowns, throw it in there with the Champions League where we’ve experienced fixture clashes with the MTN 8 in the past.

“When you look at Pep, Klopp and other successful coaches worldwide – they have won it all and have done it for years, yet they keep going. I need to learn from them and stay motivated. I look up to Pep, Fergie, Wenger, Ancelotti – they have had massive success and I look up to these people. There is one common thread above the technical level they operate on – hard work,” he added.
