Pitso Mosimane: 'I teach them and sit back'


Former Al Ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane has revealed some insight into his preferred style of management throughout his career.

Mosimane is one of the most successful coaches in African football. He’s widely credited with turning Masandawana into a footballing powerhouse between 2012 and 2020, collecting 11 trophies for the Tshwane side.

He then moved to Egyptians where accumulated five trophies in just under two years for the Club of the Century. A part of his success is down to his relationship with his technical team.

"I teach them and then I sit back," the 57-year-old revealed to Daily Thetha.

"You have to empower them and don’t micromanage. Sit back… no one is born with experience. the first one, the second one you’ll be a nervous a little bit but when you have it, you go along and you end up doing it."
