Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Junior Khanye has taken the first steps to forming his own team in his hometown Daveyton. And while unearthing gems, Junior Khanye has eyes on the very top of South African football.
The shunned Kaizer Chiefs wizard is thus ambitious about hiring Pitso Mosimane. He has identified the south African tactician to coach his newly formed team Fak’imali Uzobona FC in the future.
Pitso Mosimane who is currently one of the most successful managers in the world has been headhunted by the outspoken former Kaizer Chiefs star.
Mosimane, Al Ahly head coach, completed an incredible double treble in one season. This after a clean sweep in South Africa with Mamelodi Sundowns before going on to dominate in Egypt.
“I will add Pitso Mosimane to the list of the coaches, if given a chance I would like to work with him.” Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Junior Khanye told KickOff.
“Numbers don’t lie my brother. Pitso success in football, it’s there for everyone to see. Just look what he has achieved at Sundowns. Before he came in, the club was buying a lot of expensive players but with no results. The first season, he saved the club from relegation. The second season, he put the team in the top eight. And the following season he won the league.
“Look at the number of youngsters, Makgalwa, Mkhuma and Mkhulise, that he helped and gave a platform at Sundowns. What I like most about Pitso Mosimane is the style and culture of football that he played at Sundowns.”
While it’s a long shot for Pitso Mosimane to join a newly formed team, Junior Khanye has ultimately laid down the lofty long-term ambitions of Fak’imali Uzobona FC.
It might not be too long before South Africa gets to see Khanye’s side campaigner in the PSL. And by that time, Pitso Mosimane might very well have completed his mission up North.
