“First I must congratulate the Buccaneers. The coach, first year, two trophies, I’m very much impressed.” Pitso Mosimane said on POWERSportExtra as quoted by IdiskiTimes.

“I’ve been listening to him about formations and tactics, he’s very spot on. He knows his stuff and he is calm, humble and he’s done very well.

“You know my opinion about European coaches coming to South Africa, this is what we need to see. This is value added, brilliant. This is what we need from European coaches in South Africa.”

“Very disappointed, I think he’s also disappointed that he did not get game time. I’m open to talks if they (Kaizer Chiefs) want to send him out, I’m willing to take him.” – Swallows FC chairman David Mogashoa told SoccerLaduma.

“He did very well at Swallows. I always say to people the pressure at Swallows is not the same pressure at Chiefs. You can be a very good player at Swallows and be a bad player at Chiefs.”
