Pitso: The time was right

Posted: 3 December 2012 Time: 02:52 pm

New Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has hinted that he is unlikely to make changes to the technical team.

Mosimane was today speaking for the first time as Sundowns coach, following his appointment on Sunday after the club axed Dutchman Johan Neeskens.

The former Bafana Bafana coach says he is likely to keep the same technical team that served under Neeskens such as Alex Bapela and Harold Legodi.

"Regarding my technical team, I am not sure if I will make any changes. I do not like changing things,” Mosimane hints. "I am going to focus on the players for now, my assistants is something I will look into if I feel there is a need [to make changes],” he says.

Mosimane, who feels he is “the right person for the job”, also reveals that Sundowns had approached him before, but that the timing was never right.

“Sundowns approached me and told me about the situation. I was approached several times, but the timing was not right. [But] I feel this is the right time … I could not stay away from football anymore.”

Mosimane's first game in charge will be away to Free State Stars on Wednesday.

Word of advise to Pitso, don't play 4-3-3 formation, it does not work
I am not sure if you will last more than 24 months in that seat, Motsepe hires and fires at will

Thank-you Ma Brazilians for hiring a local coach. Good-Luck to Jingles and I know he has got that stubborness and arrogance which are part of ingredients of having a winning mentality!!!!! He might succeed on saving the Fundowns from relegation

If you want to win dont play your favourite man Teko Modise, the man no longer delivers like he used to. Elizer rodgers also does not fit in sundowns style of play, his an aerial balls type of a player . I believe Musa Nyatama match fit and in form can deliver, Theres also the likes of Hlompho Kekana, who is still fresh and better than Esrom Nyandoro. They also have thami sangweni who started well but was benched for no good reason. nyasha mushekwi scores with every body part but seats on the bench. That team has good players that are not played, these players should also start working as a team. That Schut thing should go back to its country and sundowns need to get a pillar of strength at the back.Pirates has sangweni, chiefs has Mathoho, Platinum stars has Mhlongo,Supersport has fransman.... they also need to shut the back door,play the right players, and play as a team.

This tells me that Ajax must appoint a local coach schooled in their Ajax System. - Wilfred Mugeyi assisted by Hans Vonk.

If Chiefs, MB and Wits dont get it - they will soon be fighting relegation. Ask Sundowns about these old imports. RSA is not Europe baba, this is Mzansi.

The Chiefs Chairman is still Colonized thats why he told his Faithfools that the Local Coaches cant Coach Chips and they believed and went on to bring novices like VV and Baxter in our shores with their crooked CVs

Welcome "Jingles"....I see a glimpse of light ku Pitso: you only need to change the formation (system): Neeskens has been struggling with this formation since last year December...we went into the second round...leading with more than 10 points (hence the yellow gap)...but his approaches (4 5 1 and 4 3 3) haven't played fair on our side....we played the 4 4 2 once this season (against Tuks) and strange he reverted back to his system on the following game (which was against Cape Town Ajax)...we have said on this site...ema taxini, emabhasini, even ezinkantini that our coach needs to be flexible in his approach...but ke ubegcwele inkani yeselesele: ...anyways welcome Pitso to Chloorkop, I believe anyone would have been welcomed after Neeskens decided to go against his promises..

I personally don't like this guy, but I think he is the perfect candidate to manage a top club. Foreign coaches don't really understand local football. That's why the CV Chef won't win a thing this season at least, that's why Neeskens only lasted one season, that's why the most successful coach in PSL history is a local coach. He is capable of turning Flops' fortunes around.
