Pitso On Jali: I Need To Protect My Dressing Room

Pitso Mosimane Has Commented On Signing Andile Jali

By Soccer Laduma - May 04, 2018 09:18 AM

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach, Pitso Mosimane said that there is a lot to take into consideration when signing a player like Andile Jali.

The Bafana Bafana international was released from his contract with Belgian club, KV Oostende, making a return to Mzansi, although yet to put pen to paper with any club. 

The Siya crew has revealed over the past weeks that Mamelodi Sundowns, Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates are keen on the player, with recent reports from the crew revealing that Pirates seem to be leading the race.

Speaking to the media last month, Mosimane was questioned about whether Sundowns will be signing the 28-year-old midfielder.

“He is free; if there’s a story then we sign him today. We like him, he is a good player but there’s more than that. To sign a player, it’s more than that. The culture must be good (and) everything must gel. We have made a lot of mistakes at Sundowns, signing the Petersen, other people from Europe, Zuma, I am not saying they didn’t contribute but you can just check the legacy of all the players that come in and it is not only us. It is other teams also, look at people who come from Europe, it is also important, you have to feel it, is he the one? Does he want to play for you? Is he winding down the clock, I am home (and) I can play,” Mosimane told the media last month. 

The head coach then went on to reveal that he feels he needs to protect his dressing room before adding a signing like Jali to his books. 

“I love Andile, I had him in Bafana and Andile has a very good game attitude, he is a tiger but it is more than that to sign a player, so I need to protect my dressing room also hey, because I have got the younger ones and my team is a little bit of a quiet team, Percy? Shuga? Kekana? Vila? Quiet…” 

“You know what I’m trying to say? So I need my dressing room quiet, because we have made mistakes before and made it louder and created problems. But, for the game? I think he can play for us, I like him,” Mosimane told the media.

Pitso is saying: jali may not be same jali we knew at pirates, look manyisa, Lebese, Brockie, ngoma, Zulu, laffor. Sekotlong, Razak,Mweene these are all could be captains elsewhere. No more unnecessary duplication

Pitso is right he got quality at Downs and he can't put his captain aside just to please Jali, Kekane has done a lot for Sundowns his coach can rely on him and also the money story will coz problems there because Jali will want more of which others won't be happy that's where the noise will start.

We once had clash if egos at Sundowns and it led to fist fight at some stage ( Felix Katongo and Derrick Spencer ) where Felix Katongo told Spencer it's unfair for him (Katongo) to sit on the bench while while Spencer is playing since he is more talented and experienced than Spencer

@matayitayi; exactly bro, why return back so early if you are disciplined and good?. Something is wrong with him, and European teams want disciplined players.

Pitso said he'll have a meeting with Jali to find if Jali will take the challenge of competing with Kekana, Mabunda and Manyisa positively. And one can now conclude that Jali wants to walk straight in the first eleven, something which difficult at Downs as a result of quality there. No player will walk straight into the team from his flight at Downs.
