Pitso – Am I The Only One Who Can Fix Chiefs?

Pitso Mosimane has responded to sections of Kaizer Chiefs supporters and pundits who stated he’s the only coach who could restore the club’s glory days.

Mosimane is currently back in South Africa after a short stint in Saudi Arabia that ended in a relegation with Abha Club on the final day of the Roshn Saudi Pro League.

And with the three-time CAF Champions League-winning coach and his technical team publically known on a short-term deal, there’s been several calls for Amakhosi to make a move for the former Mamelodi Sundowns and Al Ahly mentor.

“First I would like to know why am I the only one when there are many coaches in the world who can fix Kaizer Chiefs,” he told iDiski Times in an exclusive interview.

“There are good German coaches and Serbian coaches, they have all the coaches, why am I the only one to fix that? There’s a lot of people who can fix it.

“Secondly – do Chiefs want to win MTN8 and then say they’ve turned the corner? Or you wanna fix the team for the next eight to ten years? You know, you come, you win the top eight, three games. Then you’ve turned the corner?

“Then the next thing you don’t qualify for the same top eight that you won. Nedbank is four games. You can play three first-division teams by luck of the draw, you’re in the final and win it. I think the only thing that judges you as a team is the league, it’s the league. So how are you going to do it? Of course, it’s a big project, you need to change many things.”

Chiefs are currently finalising a deal for Nasreddine Nabi and five members of his new-look technical team ahead of the 2024/25 season.
