Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane claims his assistant coach, Rhulani Mokoena, will exceed his own achievements as a manager.

After wrapping up a record seventh Absa Premiership title, the former Bafana Bafana coach heaped praise on his technical staff, but conceded that Mokoena is one the country should look out for in the next few seasons.

"Young Rhulani, one of the best, best prospects. I think Rhulani will win many, many more titles; more than me," he said.

"I think he's better than me. In the next two to three years he'll be there. He's a top coach."

However, Pitso admitted Mokoena could still do with a few more seasons at the Brazilians as he gains more experience before making his first foray into management.

"He must stay a little bit. He's just won his first league medal; he's learning the ropes. It doesn't mean that when you are intelligent you will make it. You need experience, you know, they go together.

"I think he's patient [enough to stay at Sundowns], but if he's good then we have to let him go," the former SuperSport United boss added.

"My coaches are not sitting on the bench as assistant coaches; they coach. You seem them there, they coach. So that's very good."
