Pitso: We Don’t Get Jobs In Slovakia Or Serbia

In another heartfelt tribute to his now former Cape Town City counterpart Benni McCarthy, coach Pitso Mosimane has again hit back at local clubs for a lack of patience with South Africans in the Premier Soccer League.

McCarthy was sacked last week following a string of poor results and almost immediately replaced with Dutchman Jan Olde Riekerink. 

Mosimane, the Mamelodi Sundown coach who is an admirer of McCarthy, said the news had caught him by surprise.

“I never saw it coming. It’s unbelievable – I never thought Benni would take coaching this seriously and he really came in and took it to another level. His team was playing very well, even though they didn’t win a lot of games this season. I mean the guy is two years as a head coach and has already won a cup,” he told reporters. 

Mosimane said the sacking of local coaches was disheartening. 

“I was very angry when Clinton Larsen (at Chippa United) was let go. I was not happy when Cavin Johnson (at AmaZulu) was let go – what has changed? I don’t see such a big difference. As South Africans, we don’t get the big jobs when we go to Slovakia or Serbia. They don’t take us. I can’t go to Germany, they won’t take me,” he said, adding; “but I talk for the coaches because the team owners will say they haven’t won for the last seven games. But you didn’t lose seven games, you dropped points. It’s sad because I like to talk for local coaches because they can do it.”
