Former Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela this weekend said he would throw his support for Mamelodi Sundowns’ Pitso Mosimane to win the Premier Soccer League's (PSL) end-of-the-season prize for coach of the season at the awards ceremony later this month.
Briefly.co.za learned that the announcement of the various nominations in the categories for which prizes are awarded is to be announced on Monday, May 21, at the PSL’s offices in Parktown.
The awards function is going to take place at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg on May 29.
Komphela‚ who lost his position as coach of the Amakhosi following their loss to Maritzburg United which resulted in the team failing to qualify for the Nedbank Cup final last month‚ had only good things to say about Mosimane.
Komphela said he feels Mosimane deserves to be honored of the best coach in the country this season. “Pitso has worked very hard and he has delivered the goods over the last few years at Mamelodi Sundowns‚” he said.
“You must remember he has not had a break because Sundowns has been playing in the Caf Champions League and for that I think he deserves to be named the coach of the season. Sundowns have played some of the best football this season and I honestly think he deserves it,” said Komphela.
"There will be submissions and strong arguments for (Maritzburg United coach) Fadlu Davids but in my opinion he only deserves special recognition,” he added.
