The Mamelodi Sundowns coach has received mixed reviews on his analysis on television

Brazilians coach Pitso Mosimane is one of the most respected coaches in South Africa and the continent at large.

He's won the most important competitions, such as the PSL title and the Caf Champions League with Sundowns.

Mosimane also learnt his trade as an assistant at SuperSport United and then under Brazilian coach Carlos Alberto Parreira with Bafana Bafana.

Unfortunately he only enjoyed a short stint as the head coach of South Africa, before he was replaced by Gordon Igesund.

During the 2018 Fifa World Cup, we've had the pleasure of listening to Mosimane's analysis of these international matches on SuperSport.

You can view one such analysis below, thanks to a Tweet from the official SuperSport Twitter. Then you can read reactions to Mosimane's views from SA fans who tune into the broadcast.

While there's been some mixed reviews, you can also appreciate that many fans also find Mosimane's views to be wise and brilliant. Perhaps, he just has a different, relaxed way of expressing his views, when compared to European analysis.
