Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has questioned the impact of Norman Mapeza at Chippa United.

Mapeza took over at the South African side in October but his appointment didn’t impress Mosimane.

The Sundowns gaffer believes the job was supposed to be given to a local coach following the sacking of Clinton Larsen as most foreign coaches don’t make any difference in the South African football.

Speaking to, Mosimane said: “I always like to speak for local coaches, because I believe I’m a local coach, and local coaches have done it and they are doing it.

“Gavin Hunt has shown as a local coach that he can do it. I was very angry when Clinton Larsen was let off the job [at Chippa United]. I mean really what’s the difference [at Chippa now]? He hasn’t been there and then what? Do you know what I’m trying to say?

“I was not happy when Cavin Johnson was let off his job [at AmaZulu], what has happened? Have you seen any big difference? You can’t really say there’s been a big difference.

“So I speak for my local coaches because we as South Africans we don’t get jobs when we go to Slovakia or Serbia, they don’t take us you know. You can’t go to Germany, they won’t take you. Our guys need to be given enough time, and also those who are here.”

Mapeza has so far taken charge of four games in all competitions, winning two and losing the other two matches.
