Former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder, Teko Modise, believes that Pitso Mosimane could catalyse change at Kaizer Chiefs if hired.

Modise says the former Masandawana manager can only be successful if given the freedom to shape the team in his image.

The 41-year-old, who worked with Mosimane during his time with the national team and Sundowns, knows firsthand the coach's winning formula.

According to Modise, Mosimane's success is due not only to his coaching prowess but also to the players taking responsibility.

"He’s done wonders for everything [every team] that he coached, his track record speaks for itself. But yet again, when are we gonna speak about the players taking responsibility, because it’s always about coaches getting fired, and coaches getting hired. But the common denominator is always the players who are the ones that are playing," he said, as reported by The South African.

Mosimane's track record speaks for itself, having transformed Sundowns from relegation contenders to champions in just a year. Modise believes that if he is given the opportunity to overhaul the Chiefs squad, he might be able to replicate his success.

His endorsement of the former Al Ahly boss' coaching philosophy, rooted in granting the coach autonomy akin to his Sundowns tenure, resonates as the Glamour Boys continue their search for a new leader.

Amidst a backdrop of former coaches vying for the role, the club's supporters eagerly wait for a new managerial decision.

As per Goal, Mosimane's mission is to steer Abha away from danger and secure its spot in the Saudi Pro League next season.

Domestic staff files lawsuit against Mosimane

Sports Brief reported that Mosimane was sued for millions by his former domestic worker following a severe injury sustained while on duty.

Dorothy Sikirivao has filed a lawsuit in the Johannesburg High Court, demanding redress.

The coach and his wife, Moira Tlhagale, initially paid her medical bills but stopped without providing a reason.
