- Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has criticised the way South African coaches are treated by PSL clubs
- Mosimane cited various examples of local coaches who were sacked prematurely
- The Downs mentor emphasised that clubs should be more supportive of local coaches , because countries such as Germany and Slovakia wouldn't give them a chance
Briefly.co.za reported that Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane was deeply saddened by the sacking of former Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy.
News of McCarthy's exit caught many football followers off-guard and Mosimane felt that Benni was hard done by.
However, Mosimane feels that it's a common trend amongst Premier Soccer League clubs and called for the policy to come to an end.
TimesLIVE reported that Mosimane's belief is that local clubs should practice more patience with South African coaches.
Mosimane said, "I was very angry when Clinton Larsen was let off the job‚ I was not happy when Cavin Johnson was also let off."
The Downs mentor justified his point by claiming that European countries wouldn't give him a chance to coach.
Mosimane said, “I speak for local coaches because as South Africans we don’t get the jobs when we go to Slovakia or Serbia‚ they don’t take us."
The Downs tactician feels it therefore stands to reason that PSL clubs should show more faith in local coaches and give them a fair chance to excel.
He added, "I can’t go to Germany because they won’t take me."
Mosimane emphasised that he was able to win the CAF Champions League, because he was given a chance.
