Modise wants Pitso to stay at 'Downs

Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Teko Modise insists it is imperative for the club to retain the services of coach Pitso Mosimane for the sake of continuity.

Mosimane led the Brazilians to their second Premiership title in three years in the recently-concluded campaign, while winning the Telkom Knockout and Nedbank Cup in the process.

Modise believes the former Bafana Bafana coach, who is yet to renew his contract with Downs, has proven his value at Chloorkop over the years, and it would be a mistake for management not to back him.

"We all know what Pitso has achieved at Sundowns in a space of three to four years," Modise told KickOff.

"I think he has won four trophies. So I think the management knows that as much as everybody knows that. He is there at training every day. He is still as ambitious as ever and wants to win the Champions League.

"I think coach Pitso will be the same coach whether he stays or he doesn't. It's important for the team to keep him and it's important for the team to keep the players that have been there last season so we can have continuity."

Sundowns will host Nigerian giants Enyimba in their second Champions League Group B clash at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Wednesday, having opened their campaign with a 2-0 win over ES Setif in Algeria last weekend.
