Pitso Hated and broke me – Former SuperSport United defender reveals

Pitso Mosimane hated him without no reason when he was playing football, according to a former PSL player who retired from the sport in 2011.

When Mosimane was still SuperSport United’s head coach, Itumeleng Sekwale was a player for the team. The now-39-year-old recalls how he used to cry as he left the house because of the way his Kagiso-born coach treated him.

Mosimane, according to Sekwale, nearly caused him to abandon his love of football because, at a very young age, he was unable to conceal his animosity toward him.

“Pitso gave me a hard time as a young boy. I used to get home crying and tell my brother that I’m not going back there. And my brother would say, ‘you must man up, go back to the gym’,” said Sekwale on Off the Pitch with TK.

Sekwale, who also represented South Africa’s U20 national team, said that Mosimane was the cause of his departure from SuperSport United.

When Sekwale was playing for South Africa’s U20 team, the former Al Ahly coach once advised him to start looking for a new club as soon as he returned from the tournament.

“The horrible thing about Pitso is that he broke me. At a very young age, I came extremely close to losing my love for football. We were scheduled to compete in the AFCON U20, but I can’t recall the year. Pitso told me to find a new team when I returned home, he recalled, two days before I left for the U20 camp,”

“I recall a training drill where I was supposed to pass Richard Rantjie, but I switched play instead, and he yelled, ‘No, no, Itumeleng, stop it, man!'” No cameras are present here. Do you want others to know that you have scored? Pass, man!,” added Sekwale.

Itumeleng Sekwale played Moroka Swallows, Jomo Cosmos, Thanda Royal Zulu and FC AK before his retirement.
