Cape Town - Former Bafana Bafana head coach Clive Barker has tipped Pitso Mosimane to be rewarded with a second spell as national team coach in the future.
Mosimane has forged a reputation as one of the countries finest tacticians since taking over at Mamelodi Sundowns in 2012 - winning four major domestic trophies.
Barker who led South Africa to their only African Cup of Nation triumph, feels the former SuperSport United boss has matured in his way of coaching and thinking and his recent success proves he deserves another chance.
"Pitso Mosimane is a top, top class coach and I wouldn't be surprised if he bounces back to take the national team job later on again," he told KickOff.
"I have said many, many times: there is a big difference between being a club coach and an international coach. There's a lot of pressure from all around the national team coach.
"You've got to be a tactician and somebody who can talk to the press, so it's really tough job.
"It would be the right thing to do; [for Pitso] to come back and establish himself as an international coach again."
