Ex-Sundowns Star: Pitso's Hardly Got It Wrong

A former Mamelodi Sundowns defender says Pitso Mosimane has "hardly got it wrong" during his time at Chloorkop and has lauded the coach for being able to assemble a strong team. 
 
 
The Brazilians romped to the Absa Premiership title this season after finishing seven points clear of nearest challengers Orlando Pirates, who succumbed to the Tshwane giants in the penultimate round of the league campaign.
 
Mosimane's efforts were further rewarded when he was named Coach of the Season at the PSL awards ceremony and former Bafana Bafana international Matthew Booth, who won two league titles during the first of two stints in Chloorkop, believes the coach is well worth his accolades this term. 
 
 
"Pitso's hardly got it wrong," Booth tells the Siya crew when referring to the coach's squad assembly.
 
"You could look at Sekotlong, Lebese, guys like Mohomi, they haven't played much, but it's been more of a case that the squad has been so consistent that they haven't let the competition get a go." 
 
Booth also went on to hail the transformation and versatility of Percy Tau under Mosimane's guidance, with the winger having clinched the PSL Footballer of the Season and Players' Player of the Season gongs at the awards ceremony last month.
 
"He (Tau) is by far the Player of the Season and I think he's reading of the game, his ability to swap sides as well - if he isn't getting any joy on the left-hand side, he quite easily swaps over with Billiat or Zwane, and he does it with ease.
 
"In fact, if you remember one of the first games of the season, against Free State Stars, I think he scored two goals and, if I'm not mistaken, both came from the right-hand side, where he cut inside and got it onto his left foot, so he has that ability to cause damage from both wings."
