Pitso Mosimane hails Mamelodi Sundowns' technical team


Mosimane has remained one of the best coaches in the country since winning the CAF Champions League in 2016 and several other trophies along the way.

The former Bafana Bafana coach has won nine trophies with The Brazilians during his tenure and is currently chasing the 10th league title for the Chloorkop club.

'Jingles' has revealed that despite all of his achievements, he is the only technical team member without educational qualifications at Sundowns.

"I have the best technical team in the world," he boasted.

"Local boys, top boys. KB is from Rustenburg, one of the places I don't know in the village. I have Manqoba from Mzimkhulu, I have Wandel from somewhere in Durban, I have Moosa from somewhere.

"They are the best on the continent. What a top technical team. KB can you believe how he keeps the team fresh every day. Remember this well-rested team [Orlando Pirates] we were playing on Saturday, but did you see who finished strong?

"Top experts. All these guys have degrees. I am the only one uneducated. I don't have a degree. They are all educated. They went to school. They have done sports science. They are top. They are still studying, Wendel and even my masseur is doing a course with Barcelona on cryotherapy and regeneration.

"All I do, I manage the programme, I learn. I also read so that when the doctor says it's Grade 1, I know. It's two weeks, [Chad] Klate. So I don't have to wait for someone from Europe to tell me."

'Jingles' has employed a number staff members on his technical team from different races and cultural backgrounds and described it as a true rainbow nation.

"I have an Indian analyst, I have a white analyst. I have a local black analyst. I have a coloured guy on the bench, Wendel. I have a Zulu in Manqoba Mngqithi," he added.

"Me as a Tshwana, you go on and on. What a rainbow nation. What a way to show what we have and who are we in this country. It's a privilege."
