Pitso Mosimane, a former coach of Mamelodi Sundowns, has opened up to Kaizer Chiefs about the team’s nine-year trophy drought.
Pitso Mosimane, the former coach of Mamelodi Sundowns, recently revealed his connections to the Kaizer Chiefs coaching position.
The club swiftly refuted rumors that Pitso Mosimane had turned down Amakhosi’s offer, which surfaced last week.
The Chiefs have been looking far and wide for a new coach ever since they parted ways with Moleki Ntseki in October.
The team had a poor start to the 2022–2023 campaign, losing four of their opening ten games. Cavin Johnson was named interim coach by the club until the end of the season after Ntseki was fired.
Pitso Mosimane, a free agent, has been connected to the Chiefs position for more than two months, but it’s unclear if he would accept the position.
Pitso Mosimane acknowledged that getting the Chiefs back to winning ways would be difficult, but he added that if he chose to accept one of the most sought-after coaching positions on the continent, he could put out the fire.
“I have had my own challenges. When I started at Supersport United, they were relegated, and I took them to group stages of Caf Champions League and then six cup finals in a row.
“Chiefs not winning a cup for eight years, these things happen. I can put out the fires. I have always had to put out the fires, all my career. I will have to do things that were not done in the last six years. When I arrived at Mamelodi Sundowns, they had not won a single trophy in six years, and they were number 14 on the PSL log table.
“The issue is what is their short and long-term plans. It’s like in business, it works like that. Chiefs always had star players and they were beating everybody, that’s why the brand is big. I saw their game against Moroka Swallows recently and I think they need a little bit of work,” Pitso Mosimane added.
