Former Bafana star Steven Pienaar makes waves in Europe as a coach

Former Bafana Bafana star Steven Pienaar marked his coaching debut in the Netherlands with an impressive victory on Saturday.

Pienaar took charge of his first match for Ajax Amsterdam's U18 team on Saturday when he stood in for the Dutch club's 3-0 friendly win over domestic rivals AZ Alkmaar.

The former South Africa international had previously served as the U18s' assistant coach but assumed the reins earlier this week after Dave Vos left to join Giovanni van Bronckhorst's backroom staff at Rangers.

The 39-year-old is believed to be holding the position on an interim basis and Ajax are yet to announce whether he or another candidate will be appointed as Vos' permanent replacement.

Thats a good start taking into account the intergraded system that Ajax use he will be our top coach in coming years.You will never get better than this wow mzansi keep up the amazing work Coach , we are proud of you.

I'm surprised to see Pienaar and Nomvete as coaches, I remember when he said he isn't looking to be a coach after football.Ran away from his responsibilities when the national team needed him.

People with hatred will always prevail among blacks we are worse remember you hate a black man you hate yourself why asking stupid questions like "is that a first" whether is a first or fifth division team he has done well and that is the onset congratulations Sir Pinaar.
