Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane named CAF Coach of the Year

Posted: 5 January 2017 Time: 22:55

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane won the Coach of the Year accolade at the 2016 Glo-CAF awards in Abuja, Nigeria.

Such an acclaimed award is fittingly bestowed upon a man that managed to guide his side to a record-breaking Absa Premiership title triumph before masterminding a successful conquest of Africa.

The Brazilians romped to league glory in 2015/16 and also managed to claim the Telkom Knockout trophy which meant Mosimane stood alone as the only coach to have made a clean sweep of all domestic trophies in the PSL era.

After being dumped out of both the CAF Champions League and Confederation Cup, Sundowns were reinstated to the continent's showpiece tournament and ensured they made the most of their second bite.

Having lifted that particular trophy with Masandawana, Mosimane was practically a shoo-in to claim Coach of the Year ahead of DR Congo coach Florent Ibenge and Florence Omagbemi, who coaches the Nigerian women's national team.

Mosimane adds this honour to the Coach of the Year award he picked up at the PSL Awards ceremony in May last year.
