Pitso Mosimane is the most successful black African coach and has a lot of accolades to his name. He has shown immense capabilities to develop and turn players into world class stars, however he has also had his fair share of negative stories about him and some of his former players. His approach has often been criticized by fans and players alike with many accusing him of destroying players careers while he was still at Mamelodi Sundowns.
He has always opted for the best stars in the league and many have also accused him of weakening opponents and buying more than what he really needs, leading to a number of disgruntled big names on the roster.
The New Zealander who made waves for Supersport United shocked ma y when he made a move to rivals Mamelodi Sundowns. He arrived at Chloorkop in 2018. Things started going South after he complained about the lack of game time in the media. This didn't come down well with coach Pitso who approbed his loan move to Maritzburg United before eventually leaving the country after 1 goal in 13 appearances for Sundowns.
This was a classic case of 'your words against mine' as George Lebese expressed his grievances with lack of game while Pitso Mosimane claimed that he was given enough opportunities to prove himself. The star made a controversial and what many labeled a money move from Kaizer Chiefs during his prime. He eventually left Sundowns for Supersport United in 2019 before signing for American side Colorado Switchbacks.
3. Toni Silva
This clash was one of the nastiest for both Toni Silva and Pitso Mosimane. He shared an open letter in a bitter public feud claiming that the coach almost destroyed his career. It was once again a case of he says however this has to the most publicized beef the AL Ahly coach has had during his time at Chloorkop. He left Mamelodi Sundowns in 2018 after making only 7 appearances and managing only one goal.
Pitso Mosimane has positively contributed to the careers of many players like Percy Tau, Bongani Zungu, Keagan Dolly and many others, however many will argue that he must also be held accountable for the career demise of the players as well as few others such as Oupa Manyisa, Mokgokolodi Ngele and Aubrey Mngoma and others who found themselves in the grand stand.
No one is perfect and Pitso Mosimane embodied the aspects of human flaws like everyone else. He has written his name in history and will be remembered for all the good he has done rather than the few negatives. He is the first African coach to life the CAF Champions league twice. He established himself in Egypt after talking on the most feared job in North Africa.
