What Has Been The Difference From When Pitso Started Coaching To Now?

We continue to choose the best and most active users on our site, and give them a little footballing exam to pick their brains. This week we talk to Mentashe, and his third question is: What has been the key difference from when Pitso started coaching to now?

"I will be very honest with you. For me, the first person is Pitso himself, and secondly would be the president, Mr Motsepe," he said.

"Sundowns has always been blessed with a lot of quality players, no doubt about that. What Pitso has done is trim his squad to a manageable size so that he can monitor each and every individual.

"It is never easy to manage big and talented players who know they are stars. Sundowns players were playing an individual soccer before Pitso.

"Also, their confidence was very low, as happens to any player when results are not going your way. Look at what happened with Chelsea, after not having the season they expected, the team's form dropped.

"When the supporters were gunning for Pitso to be sacked, I was a bit happy, hoping my senior parent Kaizer will not hesitate in going for him and paying out Steve Komphela. But big up to Downs' president; I believe the chairmen of Chiefs and of Pirates are learning from him as I believe our football can only grow with our local coaches, and have the likes of Baxter and our adopted locals like "Mission at-your-gun" (Mpumalanga Black Aces coach Muhsin Ertugral), and then having Kekana, Nthethe, Modise and Moriri in your team around the youngsters will always take you to the next level.

"Dolly and Khama... I'm at a loss of words with their maturity. Mashaba, Zwane and Castro, and their commitment, just forces me to sign off and leaves me wondering why is the national team is struggling when you have that kind of material at your disposal (with the exception of Khama and Castro, of course).
