A year since Pitso Mosimane departed, results now prove Mamelodi Sundowns have grown from strength to strength.Mosimane's exit created concerns about The Brazilians continuing with their dominance of football in the same way they had done under Mosimane who won 11 trophies including the CAF Champions League and five league titles.
The voices of reservations were amplified when the club made an unfamiliar appointment with Manqoba Mngqithi and Rulani Mokwena as co-coaches joined by Steve Komphela in a position that was labelled as senior coach following his arrival from Golden Arrows.However, a year later Sundowns have continued cruising on the fast lane in the same way that they did under Mosimane.
We are no longer scoring 1 and park the bus against so called big teams, we attack from fisrt till the last minutes,players are getting chance to play not this thing of signing players and bench them the whole season.
We are no longer struggling to beat teams that park the bus against Us,we are no longer complaining about referees each and every game,every team that plays against Sundowns become a small team no matter if they won 95 trophies in 1972.
The main difference had never been Pitso in the first place ( not taking away the good he did with Sundowns), the turning point was when the management/president started to show patience to the technical department. That was key to Sundowns success.
Since Motsepe took over, Sundowns has backed it's coaches in the market but impatient at the same time. With time (patience), you put yourself in a position to evaluate, access, analys and correct and improve where you lack.
Yes it take a certain quality from the coach to succeed in winning trophies, normally big spenders go for the tried and tested as was the case with Pitso. But now they rip the reward of their own vision and mission. Coaches will come go but Sundowns will always remain competitive.
Pitso Mosimane won everything with Mamelodi Sundowns except MTN8 ,I wish Media and fans can stop comparing the current 3Maskitoz to Pitso,let them win CCL and CAF Super Cup than we can start comparing them.
