There was huge question marks surrounding the idea as either way Pitso Mosimane was going to be a tough act to follow no matter who was following him at Mamelodi Sundowns
And Mamelodi Sundowns took the brave decision to replace Pitso Mosimane with familiar faces in his former assistants Rhulani Mokwena & Manqoba Mngqithi with the only new face being former Kaizer Chiefs top boss Steve Komphela
A lot of people had doubted whether all three coaches even had the ability to continue where Pitso Mosimane had left off and had huge doubts themselves whether or not both coaches had the ability to win trophies for Sundowns
But within the first six months of the 2020/21 campaign all of those doubts had now disappeared as it felt and looked like Pitso Mosimane had not even left at all as Mamelodi Sundowns were dominating against every team they came up against
And about five months later as well the club went on to clinch it's fourth consecutive league title in a row by winning the inaugural DSTV Premiership title by a comfortable margin of 13 points
Then again considering that having such a system and way of working whereby all three coaches are in charge of the first team there was bound to be some kind of internal conflict
And so it was to be the case as a few weeks ago it was revealed that there was tension between the two Mamelodi Sundowns coaches in Manqoba Mngqithi and Rhulani Mokwena as they were not exactly on good terms per say
But most recently after a comfortable victory over Orlando Pirates Manqoba Mngqithi has suggested that the club and both coaches have now put that particular situation well behind them according to & courtesy of reports from KickOff.com
"I think we are going to waste too much time focusing on the negatives, and not focusing on what the team is going,"
"I think as South Africans let's understand that in every family there will always be disagreements and there will always be individual differences,"
