Brian Baloyi, a former goalkeeper for both Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs, opposes sundown’s co-coaching.
He claims that this new tendency in South African football is denying other clubs of having top-notch coaches. He claims that Downs, where they have Steve Komphela, Manqoba Mngqithi, and Rulani Mokwena, is a prime example of this.
Mngqithi and Mokwena served as co-head coaches for the Brazilian management at first, with Komphela serving as a senior coach; however, the co-coaching arrangement has since altered. The team named Komphela the first team coach, Mokwena the head coach, and Mngqithi the senior coach.
Royal AM, where Dan Malesela, Khabo Zondo, and Abram Nteo worked before Malesela decided to leave the team and rejoin Marumo Gallants, likewise embraced the co-coaching model.
The three Sundowns coaches, in Baloyi’s opinion, ought to be in charge of different teams.
“They can claim whatever they want, but it’s not true; it’s working, and they are winning.
Rulani ought to go in alone, collect his helpers, handle the strain on his own, and take pleasure in his work without worrying about the other coaches.
The former shot-stopper stated, “They might see it differently, but it is keeping him from enjoying coaching.
“For goodness sake, Manqoba ought to be leading the national team. Instead of bringing these coaches from out of nowhere to the PSL, Komphela ought to be coaching AmaZulu or some other team. You might respond, “Yes, they are creating possibilities for other young coaches when they are there, but what do we do?” We hire outside younger coaches. How many young coaches are there in the nation who are leading teams in the National First Division and the DStv Diski Challenge, but we don’t give them a chance?
“I don’t want to boil everything down to race, but once more, if I have to, it’s unfair to some extent,”
