PITSO “JINGLES” IS on the brink of adding a second Caf Champions League title to his glittering career as his Al Ahly team take on Zamalek in the final of Africa's premier club tournament in the all Egyptian final in Cairo on Friday.
Since joining the high-flying Al-Ahly it seems ‘Jingles’ has found that much deserved respect and love from the management, players and thousands of fans in Egypt- a first for a South African.
Yes, as time goes there will be some negativity and interference as it would happen in every environment be it corporate world or Government- its how one responds and handles the situation considering Pitso is in ‘no man’s Island’ from football perspective.
Being the very first export to the Pharaos –back home-he needs our support be it good times and bad.
If arrogancy does its magic-wand then Pitso, whom many regard as ‘Mr Know it all’ then be my guest. If its arrogancy that his former boss Dr Patrice Motsepe is potraying in vying for the top CAF post, then be my guest.
His family, particularly the wife and manager Moira Mosimane who is in Cairo for the finale, will have to roll with punches when that time comes, cos it will.
Who knows ‘Jingles’ next destination- your guess is just too good as mine…? Yes, black child it is possible just put your mind to it. Amen.
We wish the Krugersdorp born and his proudly SA fellow technical team will in the finals and in the future, hauweng banna!
Unfortunately, the game won’t be televised.
