Motaung added that South African coaches need to work harder in terms of acquiring knowledge just like Mosimane and Hunt did.

Motaung was responding to a question from a club supporter on why it was difficult for local coaches to succeed at Chiefs.

“It’s not only at Kaizer Chiefs but all the teams in the league.

“It’s not really difficult but it’s about knowledge. Some of our local coaches need to work harder in terms of acquiring knowledge.

“We’ve seen the work coaches such as Pitso Mosimane and Gavin Hunt have done to improve themselves. We need more of that sort of commitment from all our local coaches.” Motaung told the club’s website.

The questions sent into Chiefs’ website by club supporters are part of the club’s 50th anniversary celebrations.

Meanwhile, Mosimane took to Twitter to respond to Motaung’s comment.

“The ‘Kaizer’ seldom speaks‚ and it is important you don’t miss the message!

“I think I was 13/14 years old playing street football in Phefeni‚ Sentsho Street [where Chiefs’ first clubhouse was situated]. I would always stop him to chat in his Ford Mustang,” wrote Mosimane.

Mosimane and Hunt are two of four coaches to have won four Premier League titles. The others are Gordon Igesund and the late Ted Dumitru.
