Foreign coaches should be screened – Mosimane


Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane is of the view that local football authorities should start screening foreign coaches, who come into the country seeking for employment.

South Africa has always been welcoming to coaches from all walks of life but not many taste success or make a difference in local football.

Speaking during an event organised by one of their sponsors, Hyundai, to celebrate their recent treble, Mosimane argued that most coaches come to the country having won nothing.

“I just believe some of the coaches that come to South Africa really, really I think they must be screened,” Mosimane told journalists.

“The same ways as English football sanction screening on players. Percy (Tau) and them can’t get a chance, probably we should screen because you can’t come here, having won nothing. What are the chances of winning here when you have won nothing before? You know.

“Let’s be honest, if I am an unemployed someone in Europe and I come here. So maybe when you take someone from a club in Europe and you bring him here, that’s something else hey, but most of the guys who come here don’t have a job,” continued Mosimane.

The last time a foreign coach won the premier division league in South Africa was back in 2015 when English coach Stuart Baxter was at Kaizer Chiefs.
