Pitso: The time was right

Pitso Mosimane says he is the right man for Mamelodi Sundowns job

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.

Mr. Vision 2014 Mosimane welcome

Let me salute Mr. Motsepe for his progressive decision in hiring a local Coach instead of the foreign underachievers who come with crooked CVs and get to be called sirs for nothing

NO ONE WILL DEVELOP OUR COACHES FOR US

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

"Yeye Does not look Good-Pitso!!

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

Dane Klate
Katlego Mphela
Katlego Mashego(Mahoota)
Teko Modise
Sibusiso Mahlangu
Abram Raselemane(R.I.P)
Siboniso Gaxa

Together with Thomas Madigage(R.I.P)

Just to mention a few......Pitso cannot be compared to likes of Roger De Sa........

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.
