Sono, Phali face new roles at Cosmos

Bamuza Sono and Avril Phali rewarded at Jomo Cosmos

Posted: 11 July 2011 Time: 01:47 pm

Jomo Sono reveals he is grooming his son, Bamuza, and Avril Phalli for roles at Jomo Cosmos when they retire.

Sono says he has earmarked his offspring for a role as team manager, while Phali will be the goalkeepers’ coach.

Bra J says this is just reward for the players for the commitment and loyalty they have shown over the years, particularly when the club was relegated two seasons ago.

The duo, alongside experienced defender and now communications head Lucky Mhlathe helped the club regain its Absa Premiership status.

For this they received the Chairman’s Award at the awards dinner held at the Emperors Palace in the East Rand on Saturday. The three players shared R60 000 among themselves.

“At Cosmos we believe in grooming players for future roles at the club once they retire. For example, Lucky is now the director of communications; Bamuza is the future team manager, while Phalli will be the goalkeepers’ coach,” says Sono.

Sono is famed for retaining players in managerial roles once their playing days are over. Among the former players that are still part of the team are Gerald Mtshali, who is Sono’s assistant, and former defender Andrew Rabutla, who is the team manager.

"Sono is famed for retaining players....." But he is not the only one doing that. What about Ryder Mofokeng, Doctor, Tsikitsiki, 10111.... the list is endless?

They will keep getting relegated and then bouncing back. Thats all they know, and with such people on the management role, I dont see it stopping. Its going to be the culture.
