“It Wouldn’t Be A Good Idea For Sundowns To Start From Scratch”

It would not be in the best interest of Mamelodi Sundowns to start from scratch with a new head coach, says Stars of Africa academy boss, Farouk Khan.

Pitso Mosimane’s contract situation at Sundowns has been one of the biggest talking points in the football fraternity, as the head coach is yet to put pen to paper on a new deal at the club, with just over two months left on his current one.

In addition to the conversation Khan had with the Siya crew this week, here is what the former Kaizer Chiefs assistant coach had to say when asked about whether Sundowns can afford to replace Mosimane, should the two parties be unable to come to a mutual agreement.

“Well I think, coaches come and go, when Pep left Barcelona, a new coach came in, no two coaches will be the same, you can find a coach that could be as successful or even more successful, but never the same,” Khan said.

“But what I am saying is, why try to reinvent things, if you have got a coach who understands the philosophy, who’s been successful, why would you want to change him based on financial demands? Couldn’t you come to a middle ground and say – okay fine, you wanted X but we are prepared to give you Y, can’t you come in to a medium and let’s compromise.”

“I don’t think it would be in their interest at this stage, to bring in somebody else, I think Pitso has done an extremely good job and he is still in line for the league this season, he is four points behind with a game in hand, the league could go anywhere so he still has a chance and he is still in the Nedbank Cup.”

“Based on success, he has delivered, so I don’t think it would be a good idea for Sundowns and I don’t think by bringing in a new guy who has to start from scratch, it would be to their advantage,” he added.
