Kumalo holds no grudges against Pitso Mosimane


Former Mamelodi Sundowns player Sibusiso Kumalo holds no grudges against coach Pitso Mosimane who relegated him to a mere spectator at Chloorkop.

Kumalo, who is job hunting, parted ways with Sundowns late last year after 6 torrid years at Sundowns.

A lot was expected when Mosimane signed him as a young promising central midfielder from Moroka Swallows in 2013, but now his career is at crossroads as a 29-years-old.

“I hold no grudges against Pitso, and I don’t regret joining Mamelodi Sundowns. I achieved a lot by being part of the team. I won 2 league titles even though I made no contribution and my life changed,” Kumalo told FARPost.
“Pitso is the one who signed me from Swallows, so I doubt he did that aiming to kill my career. There is something he saw in me. There is no coach who signs a player just to kill his career, “said Kumalo.

Kumalo’s failure to win a place at Sundowns was followed by a string of consecutive loan spells to Maritzburg United, Jomo Cosmos and Bidvest Wits.

“As players who didn’t succeed as Sundowns, we should look at ourselves and ask if we really worked hard. If a coach doesn’t play you it means, there is something you are not doing right. Maybe we relaxed after joining Sundowns and took things lightly. You need to look at yourself and say maybe I didn’t work enough,” added Kumalo.

“Players shouldn’t be scared of going to Sundowns. There are success stories there. Players like (Sibusiso) Vilakazi succeeded and were never loaned out. Maybe they would be a generation to win the elusive MTN8 for the club,” concluded Kumalo.
