He talks about his transition to Austria, his future with the Zambia national team and just who’s jersey he swapped after playing Liverpool at Anfield in the Uefa Champions League this past season. It is not who you might think!

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has begun an overhaul of his squad as he looks to phase out some of the older players and create a new generation to continue his dynasty of success.

Mosimane recently revealed his plans for the next few years and which players he is looking to replace.

“We are currently preparing the team for the future because of the age of the most important players in the team,” Mosimane says.

“We have lots of guys over 30, and when it is over 30 they are not getting younger. None of their speed is getting better, they are just declining.

“That is the challenge we have at Mamelodi Sundowns. These guys have won so many trophies with me and they are important for the team, but what are you going to do, you can’t work against time.”

Listen to the latest episode to hear which specific players he is talking about and more thoughts on the current state of the team.

Finally, we chat to Football Association of Malawi President Walter Nyamilandu, who is also a member of the all-powerful FIFA Council.

He updates us on COVID-19 in his country, as well as FIFA’s plans for the game in another fascinating insight into the world of football. Nyamilandu has ensured FAM have made great strides in financially assisting players, male and female, in Malawi during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as other initiatives.
