Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns have built a fierce rivalry in recent seasons and the two teams are going head to head for this season's Absa Premiership.
Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has continuously thrown shade at the Amakhosi in a bid to derail their title aspirations.
Despite this, Chiefs chairman Kaizer Motaung has heaped praise on Mosimane and Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt.
As part of Chiefs' 50th birthday celebrations, the chairman has answered various questions posed by the fans.
When asked why it's harder for coaches to be successful at Chiefs, Motaung cited the examples set by Hunt and Mosimane.
Motaung said, "Some of our local coaches need to work harder in terms of acquiring knowledge. We’ve seen the work coaches such as Pitso Mosimane and Gavin Hunt have done to improve themselves. We need more of that sort of commitment from all our local coaches.”
Mosimane welcomed the compliment and shared a heartwarming response via Twitter:
“The 'Kaizer’ seldom speaks‚ and it is important you don’t miss the message!"
TimesLIVE reported that Motaung also identified who he believes was Chiefs' best ever signing.
Motaung said, “It has to be the late ‘Ace’ Ntsoelengoe."
Previously, Briefly.co.za reported that Pitso Mosimane took aim at Kaizer Chiefs once again.
The Downs mentor feels that Chiefs players have an added advantage, as they will be even more well-rested than his charges.
Mosimane cited the strain of continental football and warned that next season will be much tougher for the Glamour Boys.
