Tanzania’s Young Africans coach inspired by Mosimane’s achievements


Young Africans mentor Cedric Kaze says Pitso Mosimane is an inspiration for every African coach following his achievements with the Egyptian giants Al Ahly.

Mosimane has already accumulated six trophies in 2019/20 season including his time at former club Mamelodi Sundowns and the Caf Super Cup would make it seven.

The 56-year-old South African football manager recently claimed a Bronze medal at Fifa Club World Cup.

As a result, Mosimane became the first South African coach to win a medal at a Fifa world event.

“He is an inspiration to every African coach who is working very hard to get to the highest football level in Africa and beyond,” Kaze told CAFOnline.com.

“He has taught us a very good lesson that if you work hard, you can get anywhere. Now, an African coach is coaching the best club in the world.”

Kaze reckons that Mosimane’s accomplishments prove that hard work pays off in the end and believes that it is wrong for coaches in Africa to set themselves limits of where they can coach.

“The meaning of that is very huge and it should give every African coach a boost to believe in what we are doing, to work very hard and to know that there are no limits,” adds the Yanga coach.

The Burundian coach went on to say that he wants to lead Yanga to the promised land by winning domestic and continental trophies.

“My ambition is to help Yanga reach the summit, to win trophies and to go far in African competitions. I know I have the knowledge and the ambition to succeed after that in North Africa and in the world,” he elaborated.

“I believe that we, African coaches, put ourselves a limit. In future, I want to reach a very good level. I know that it is going to come by working very hard and taking opportunities when they come. But first I should do well where I am.”
