Pitso Mosimane has spoken of the importance of promoting talent through Mamelodi Sundowns’ development structures drawing a comparison to Percy Tau’s journey.
Sundowns confirmed yesterday that Mosimane put pen to paper on a new four-year contract, with the head coach on his way to becoming the longest-serving coach at Masandawana.
While Mosimane eyes continuous success and more trophies for the cabinets, the 55-year-old remains equally focused on promoting young talent and exposing them to European markets, as seen with Percy Tau – who came through the ranks at the Brazilians and is flourishing abroad.
“We need to keep promoting young talent from our development. We have been successful in the past, that’s what I want to see happening more. Bringing Percy Tau up from our Youth Development and seeing him flourish in Europe is incredible,” he said on Sundowns’ official website.
“We have done well, by promoting players through the ranks and we need to expose them to European markets.
“Motjeka Madisha, Siphelele Mkhulise, Keletso Makgalwa and Nicholus Lukhubeni need to be playing for Sundowns. There’s Harold Majadibodu and Abram Ngcobo, I want them to be playing for the senior team.
“We now have Jose Ramon working with the youth teams, putting structure at the club and we should have more players coming through the system,” the head coach added.
