Pitso Names His Six Early Idols

Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane has revealed who his idols were when he was growing up in South Africa.

Before turning to coaching, Mosimane was a great player himself in his day, starring both locally and abroad in the eighties and nineties.

Mosimane says that growing up in Kagiso in the seventies he used to idolise players like Vincent Makroti and Kenneth ‘The Horse‘ Mokgojoa.

But as he get older he was enamoured by the trio of Teenage Dladla, Ace Ntsoelengoe and Jomo Sono.

“When I was young in Kagiso, so when I was young ,around about 12, maybe 11, 12, my idol was Vincent Makroti,” Mosimane said Instagram Q&A arranged by his management team MT Sports Management.

“And the other one was the Horse Mokgojoa. And there was another guy called Tap-Tap, he was also very good too.

“So those were my idols at that early age, but when I started to look at football differently and with age, my top guy was Ace Ntsoelengoe, but the big man was Nelson ‘Teenage’ Dladla, but then also Jomo Sono took part in that space.”
