Pitso: The Question I Ask My Players…

Pitso Mosimane Has Revealed The Question He Constantly Asks His Players

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 04, 2018 12:51 PM

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach, Pitso Mosimane has revealed what he constantly asks his players while they are still playing on the African continent.

The Brazilians will soon be gearing up for the group stages of the CAF Champions League competition, however, domestically, still have the Absa Premiership title and Nedbank Cup to challenge for; a possibility of adding three trophies to their cabinet by the end of the year.

Speaking to the media, Mosimane revealed that he always asks his players what they want to accomplish on the African continent, should they not be able to play abroad.

“I will always tell players, my guys, we are in for a short time in football. Time goes past us, but I always ask them, a player like Vila (Sibusiso Vilakazi), if you are not going to have the opportunity to play in Europe or probably maybe later, what would you like to do whilst you are in South Africa? Not only him as a player but any player in Africa, what would you like to do?” Mosimane revealed to the media.

The head coach then went on to say that being a player at Sundowns, means that you are able to accomplish everything to offer on the African continent.

“We want to win the league, we want to win the Champions League, we want to win the Super Cup, you want to play in the FIFA World Cup, (and) you want to play for Bafana Bafana. What else? 

“That’s why he (Vilakazi) came to Mamelodi Sundowns and he won't regret that, that is the level, there is nothing bigger than that in the continent, what else can you get? So he is fortunate, he is in the right club, in the right space.  

“Other cups you can always win here, those ones they come by every day, every year, but these special ones come once in a while. If you ask (Lionel) Messi in Europe what does he want to achieve? He wants to win the Champions League, he wants to win the league, Super Cup, World Cup with his country, and he wants to win the FIFA World Cup Club tournament. It is the same,” he added.

Pitso took Downs that spent over 60 months trophyless and made them African Champs within 42 months in his tenure... I think he earned his rights to speak things like this.... It would have been hypocrisy if it was coming to other coaches except RDS n Tinkler.

We can ignore or call him names but he is not shy to call spade a spade.... Players tend to think that signing with European strugglers is an achievement, but an achievement is to win the most important trophies in ur homeland.... Mohammed Abutracker is simple example.... Kekana is another example.. All these players achieved all they wanted to while playing in the African soil. Pitso might not be the model coach but he actually knows what's good for his team and his players.

Zebras want to play against Downs. Hence Khune celebrates as if they won a trophy when they beat mighty Downs
