Title Winning Success For Former Kaizer Chiefs Player

By Masebe Qina - May 02, 2018 05:58 PM @MasebeQina

A former Kaizer Chiefs defender, who is now a head coach of a club, has won a league title and qualified his team for the promotional play-offs.

Maccabi FC – a Gauteng-based ABC Motsepe League team – has qualified for the promotional play-offs for the NFD, after winning their league. The team is coached by Mokete Tsotetsi, a former Chiefs and Bloemfontein Celtic defender.

Maccabi won the league on the last day of the season, in their game against Dube Continental.

Maccabi went to the game trailing JDR Stars by two points, and with Tsotetsi having managed to lead his charges to a 3-0 win over Dube Continental, and with JDR losing 2-1 against Pretoria Callies, the former Amakhosi man achieved the fate of qualifying a team for the play-offs.

“It wasn’t easy, especially as first time head coach for a team in Gauteng. Good thing is that I had a good technical team and good management. They all gave me very good support from the beginning of the season until the end. They believed in me, as a young boy who’s trying to build a coaching career. They gave me a chance, and followed that up with their full support. That is what made it possible for me to work with the talented group of young boys that I have been working with,” said Tsotetsi.

Tsotetsi, 35, will be hoping to win the play-offs for the team to be promoted to the National First Division. The play-offs are scheduled to take place in Limpopo from June 04. 

“It’s not easy in this league, especially in Gauteng, and that’s why I believe that the standard of football in the ABC Motsepe League is growing. It shows where we are going in South Africa with football. It wasn’t easy, especially with JDR also competing (for play-offs qualification), as well as Dondol (Stars), who have also been in the race. Our boys have been dedicated, because they knew what they wanted. They fought until the very end, without giving up. I would like to compliment the boys for their fighting spirit. They are the ones on the field and faced challenges during trying times. With the help of the coaches, technical team and I, we managed to guide them and showed them that anything is possible. We fought until the end,” concluded the former centre-back.

@setlaboswana: you can ask that question because not only him coached an ABC Motsepe league team to play-offs . Each of the 9 provinces surely has a team and a coach who guided it to play-offs but why only Mokete !

Where is this heading? That he can win the league if he takes over from Mapedi and Arthur Zwane?

Good to see former players doing great after retiring, wishing him all the best and hope he won't be dumped after gaining promotion
