The former Bafana Bafana coach feels Sundowns supporters nearly got rid of a good coach when the team was struggling for results in 2015

Orlando Pirates legend Jomo Sono says Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane is a workaholic and very arrogant.

Mosimane, who won the 2016 Caf and PSL Coach of the Year accolades, played under Sono at Jomo Cosmos as a striker in the 80's.

Cosmos chairman and coach Sono stated that accomplished tactician Mosimane inherited his arrogance from him.

"Look, Pitso has always shown potential in coaching back from 2001 where he took over as a head coach from assistant role at Supersport," Sono told Vodacom Soccer.

"Pitso has done very well so far as a young coach. He is a workaholic and very arrogant, but he has unfortunately inherited arrogance from me (laughing), because he is one of my products (as a player)," he said.

"He has got his own head, when he has decided he has decided, and believes in the decision he has taken."

"He has done well despite enduring some difficult times where some of Sundowns supporters were calling for his sacking," Sono stressed.

"His stay (at Downs) shows that the supporters nearly got rid of a good coach, which tells you about an importance of supporters' role of being patient towards the team's coach under difficult circumstances.," he concluded.
