Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has promised the Masandawana faithful that the club would win more trophies.
The man nicknamed “Jingles” was speaking following confirmation by club boss Patrice Motsepe that he has signed for a further 4 years.
“One of the main reasons for me to renew my contract with Mamelodi Sundowns is the President’s trust and faith in me, he trusted me to lead this team to where it is – and fulfill his wish to build a team to conquer Africa. It’s humbling to be part of a brand like Sundowns and contribute to its success, especially as a local coach and also having played for the team.”
“To go on and be the longest-serving coach at the club is something special and that means we have a lot of things we have done together and the best is yet to come. The Sky Is The Limit.”
Despite all the success, Mosimane is still hungry for more, and is confident his team can continue on their mission to become an indomitable force across Africa.
“I believe it’s important for a club like Sundowns to constantly challenge for the Absa Premiership and CAF competitions, we need to win the Champions League – and it’s a big thing. No one wins it easily, we are focused on this.”
Mosimane added: “We have done well, by promoting players through the ranks and we need to expose them to European markets. Motjeka Madisha, Siphelele Mkhulise, Keletso Makgalwa and Nicholus Lukhubeni need to be playing for Sundowns. There’s Harold Majadibodu and Abram Ngcobo, I want them to be playing for the Senior Team. We now have Jose Ramon working with the youth teams, putting the structure at the club and we should have more players coming through the system.”
“A crucial factor in me signing was also my relationship with the supporters. You stay where you are loved, simple. They (supporters) have made songs, banners, flags and t-shirts for me, it is not easy to have that kind of love, so I am home here – I have built a legacy here.”
