- The former Mamelodi Sundowns coach who is now in charge of Al Ahly has released a list of players he rates highly
- ‘Jingles’, as Pitso Mosimane is known, says the likes of Hlompho Kekana, Kermit Erasmus and Keagan Dolly are among the best players
- The South African all-time Premier Soccer League winner, Pitso Mosimane, has also included Teko Modise and the late Anele Ngcongca in his list
After winning 11 trophies with Mamelodi Sundowns, Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane has called a number of players he has worked with, saying they are the best.
On top of the list are players such as Keagan Dolly and Khama Billiat as well as campaigners such as Themba Zwane, Hlompho Kekana and Anthony Laffor.
These are the players who formed an incredible line-up at Chloorkop when the Brazilians clinched the CAF Champions League in 2016.
Mosimane is credited to have changed the club’s fortunes, especially considering the fact that European coaches such as Hristo Stoichkov and Johan Neeskens are among the few who failed to secure trophies at Sundowns.
Taking to Twitter, the Red Devils manager has listed players who have helped to not only brighten his coaching career but also make him the best winner in the South African scene.
The Kagiso-born manager has claimed five Premier Soccer League trophies with Sundowns and the team bagged it 10th in the PSL era last season.
“Gaucho, Keegz (Dolly), Mshishi (Zwane), Gaston (Sirino) ,Valdez, Romeo (Kermit Erasmus), Ricardo (Nascimento), Gonzalez (Hlompho Kekana), Sledge, Denis (Onyango), Dona (Teko Modise), Domingues (Elias Pelembe), Surprise (Moriri), Snotty (Anthony Laffor), (Alje) Schut, Mr Cool (Thabo Nthethe), Dungi, Fire R, Mandla Zwane, Shuffle (Jabu Pule), (Thulani) Serero, Schillo (Steven Pienaar), Ree (Sibusiso Zuma), Killer (Katlego Mphela), Anele (Ngcongca), (Sphelele) Pitso Mkhulise, Method Mwanjali etc.”
During his stay at the reigning Nedbank Cup champions, ‘Jingles’ helped to establish the famous ‘CBD’ which consisted of Leonardo Castro, Billiat and Dolly who terrorised Premier Soccer League defenders.
Apart from bagging the continental trophy beating Zamalek in a two-legged final in 2016, Mosimane has also tasted CAF Super Cup glory as well as leading the Tshwane giants to the FIFA Club World Cup.
Meanwhile, Briefly News reported that Kekana was on target as Sundowns demolished Orlando Pirates in the Ke Yona tournament on Thursday evening at Loftus Versfeld Stadium.
The evergreen Sundowns continued with their winning run as they demolished Orlando Pirates 4-1 in an entertaining Nedbank Cup quarter-final clash at Loftus Versfeld Stadium on Thursday evening.
The Buccaneers were out to end Sundowns’ unbeaten run as they have only lost one match this season, a loss that came at the hands of Bloemfontein Celtic in the MTN8, but they could not stop the reigning Ke Yona champions.
