Sundowns Coach Pitso Mosimane may have his fair share of detractors, but has established himself as one of African football’s most respected figures.
Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has often received criticism for his direct and outspoken nature.
However, it’s hard to dispute Mosimane’s contribution to the beautiful game and he has carved out a tremendous reputation across the African continent.
His love affair with the CAF Champions League has earned him many admirers outside of the South African borders.
KickOFF.com reported on Mosimane’s stint as a football analyst for Afcon 2019 and heaped praise on the former Bafana Bafana coach.
It’s hard to forget Mosimane’s contribution to Supersport United as he managed the club during its maiden entry into the CAF Champions League.
Briefly.co.za also recalls the change under Mosimane at Sundowns where the continental tournament was prioritised.
As a result, the Brazilians tasted success in the tournament as victors, with Mosimane’s reputation ever-growing.
Thanks to these exploits, Mosimane was invited for the CAF Pro License – he was one of a handful of coaches to be selected.
His stint on Egypt TV will be another feather in his cap and it’s hard to dispute that the Sundowns mentor is now one of the most prominent figures in South African football.
