Mphahlele: Local Is Lekker...

Baroka FC chairman Khurishi Mphahlele is motivated by the success of Mamelodi Sundowns and AmaZulu FC, led by local coaches.

Usuthu coach Benni McCarthy won the PSL Coach of the Season and led his side to a CAF Champions League spot, while Mamelodi Sundowns successfully defended their league title led by co-coaches Manqoba Mngqithi, Rulani Mokwena and senior coach, Steve Komphela.

Mphahlela reviewing his season with coach Thoka Matsimela says it is a motivation to see teams led by local coaches in the PSL doing well and he wants to see Matsimela doing that for Bakgakga. 

"I'm motivated by AmaZulu FC, it show that everything is possible and we beat them and that means we can compete in this league. Their success also proves that local coaches can do well," Mphahlele tells the Siya crew.

"Sundowns dominated the league with local coaches, it is all about giving them the proper support and we want to keep on doing that with our coach. He has done well for us." 

Even though Bakgakga finished outside the top eight, Mphahlele is still happy with his coach and has vowed to give him everything he needs to succeed like other coaches.

"Only a mad person can release him. He has done well for this team and we are happy with him. I fully support him, we want to make sure we give him everything he needs for next season."
