Mamelodi Sundowns head coach, Pitso Mosimane, is an inspiration to a former Bloemfontein Celtic coach whose aim is to make a name for himself in Mzansi’s top-flight.
Having previously worked as an assistant to Serame Letsoaka at Celtic in 2016, Morena Ramoreboli is keen to write his name in the history books as head coach of a club in the elite league.
Ramoreboli is the current coach of Lioli FC in Lesotho Premier League and is still remembered for leading third tier league outfit Maluti FET College to knock Orlando Pirates out of the Nedbank Cup in 2013.
“I always talk about coach Pitso because when he started coaching at SuperSport United I was starting to get involved in coaching at amateur level. Seeing him moving from being just a coach to being a great coach is an inspiration to me. I watched him move from SuperSport to Bafana Bafana – and at one stage he was rejected if I may put it that way – as people were saying a lot of things about him. He went to Mamelodi Sundowns and his first season wasn’t that good and people were fighting him and all of that. But look at him today,” said Ramoreboli.
“Sometimes you don’t get a smooth road to travel on, and sometimes you need to go through difficult moments of your life. That’s where you gain strength and grow. People may say he is arrogant but it’s not about that in the end, he has been working hard. I can even say that sometimes black coaches don’t get a fair chance in football and that pushes us to work even harder, because we know that we might get fired anytime. Looking at where he is today, it’s an inspiration to me to say, ‘If you can work harder Morena you can get there’” the coach added.
