Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns captain Ramahlwe Mphahlele has revealed the excellent working relationship he has with coach Pitso Mosimane.

Mphahlele, who recently completed an impressive 50 consecutive starts for the Brazilians in their Telkom Knockout match against SuperSport United, has become an increasingly vital member of the 'Downs side over the least two seasons.

He is one of three club captains, the others being Thabo Nthethe and Denis Onyango.

Mphahlele explained that he has a lot of respect for Mosimane's methods, even if they do not see eye to eye on all aspects.

"I have been with Pitso ever since I was called back from Tuks [on loan]," Mphahlele told the PSL website.

"What a lot of people don’t know about me and Pitso is that we fight a lot!

"But at the end of the day it’s about business and not personal. He is like a mentor and willing to listen to my point of view which makes for a healthy relationship.

"Pitso is a workaholic! He leaves nothing to chance, every detail is important to him. He is focused and highly professional. He’ll stay up to 2am watching matches on TV, looking at opponents. 

"It makes our jobs easier. He’ll tell me for example, '[Jeremy] Brodie does this, or he likes to make runs into this space’," added the 25-year-old former Moroka Swallows defender.
