Pitso’s Micho Tribute, Reveals Text To Rhulani

Pitso Mosimane has paid tribute to the now ex-Orlando Pirates coach Micho Sredojevic for keeping him on his toes during his two-year stint there.  

The Mamelodi Sundowns mentor also revealed that he sent an encouraging text to Rhulani Mokwena, who has taken over the reins at the Buccaneers, albeit temporarily, and suffered a 1-0 defeat to Highlands Park in his first match in charge.

Sredojevic resigned unexpectedly on Friday.

“I must tell you I was very sad because Micho is a personal friend of mine‚” Mosimane said to journalists. “Micho gave me Denis Onyango. I know Micho for many years‚ from when he was still at Saint-George (in Ethiopia). He invited me over to a Cecafa tournament to see players‚ and he highlighted Denis and other guys when I was still at SuperSport United. That’s how far back we go. I sent him a text‚ and he hasn’t replied yet‚ that I’m saddened by him leaving. We never had a go at each other. It was professional. And he’s a professional guy‚ a humble guy. He even handles a loss much better than me. I learnt from him‚ like Steve Komphela. Those guys handle defeats much better than me.”

On Mokwena, who worked as his assistant for two years, Mosimane said: “I even texted Rhulani as well. I wished him luck‚ and that he has been looking for that and he got the opportunity to do it. He must just fly. I told you guys when he was still next to me that I think Rhulani is going to be better than me. But you know how football is. You still have to travel the road. And Rhulani must never worry about the loss because it’s part of football.”
