Top Award For Micho Or Pitso, Says Former Bucs Star

Former Pirates Midfielder Weighs In On Coach Of The Season Award Nominations

By Soccer Laduma - May 24, 2018 12:37 PM

Former Orlando Pirates midfielder, Gerald Modabi, says that there are only one of two options to choose from for the PSL Coach of the Season.

Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic and Pitso Mosimane have both been nominated for the top accolade for their outstanding work with Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns respectively.

The two coaches have been nominated alongside with Fadlu Davids, who has done amazing work as the head coach of Maritzburg United.

“It is actually funny that I got to work with both of them (Sredojevic and Mosimane) at the different times of my 13-year career. On Micho, like Pitso, he works very hard. He lives football. His heart and soul is in the game. He does a lot of work behind the scenes. He makes sure that he finds out about the players’ well-being, personally and their work. He deserves everything that’s happening to him. To come back and go on to finish in second place by a mere five points, he has done well,” said Modabi.

“Sundowns could have tripped in any moment of that two-way horse race in the last four games of the season. He (Sredojevic) could have gone on to win the league. I’d be glad if either one of them (Sredojevic and Mosimane) wins the Coach of the Season award. But with Pitso having won it before, it would be nice for Micho to take this one for the work he has done,” added the former midfielder.

@SyandaB Then you must ask your Irvin Khoza to increase the welfare and create an award for the most improved team of the season, not this rubbish of nominating big guns like Pitso with no name brands like Micho

Cowdabi what is the criteria of winning a coach of the season? Both candidate competing with Pitso has won nothing. PSL should have created another award for run-ups for their had word. Yes Micho and Davids have done well for Pirates and MU respectively but not enough thought. Like man of the match which is selected on the winning team for the achievement. PITSO WIN COACH OF THE SEASON WITHOUT FAIR OR FAVOR.

@Gustin Sirino : you have a good point much as I would have loved to see Micho winning this top accolade but reality is that Micho hasn't done enough to receive such top honour,Coaches win top awards based on the team's achievements,obviously winning the League is more than enough for Pitso to win the coach of the season award.

Next season will surely be Micho's turn to win the accolade,as for now I think Pitso deserved it more than any other coach,if you take take it into consideration that he has won the League currently and such achievement will work to his advantage.Pitso will win it unopposed there's no doubt about that.

We need to stop the desperation in South Africa , Micho is not a coach of the season, He won Nothing, coaching a big team like Pirates. Free state star coach rank higher he won something, Fadlu transform Maritzburg with very little. Pitso wins it he won the marathon, Soweto sleeping giants can't force success you earn it

In South Africa we have useless journalists, useless players, useless club owners, stupid fans the list endless. This useless journalist decided to go and ask the opinion of the former useless player who never won a single man of the match award. This former useless player thinks the useless coach who won nothing the whole season can win coach of the year award.
