It’s been reported that Mamelodi Sundowns senior coach Manqoba Mngqithi is a ‘favourite’ to become Royal AM’s next mentor, should the club’s current set of coaches face the sack.
Given the recent technical team reshuffling at Sundowns, Mngqithi is available for the post as the Citizen reports that Royal AM deem the 51-year-old as a ‘good fit’ for the club.
According to the publication, the current Royal AM mentors are said to be ’skating on really thin ice’ and that the club are now looking to approach Mngqithi.
“They (the Royal AM coaches) are now skating on really thin ice,” a source told Phakaaathi.
“They were on the brink of being fired but were saved when they won in Zambia.
“After Saturday’s defeat to Mamelodi Sundowns things have soured again. It is clear that there is no direction in terms of play.
“And Manqoba Mngqithi’s sudden availability is also adding to the pressure. He would be a good fit for the club and the management are toying with the idea of approaching.”
“They are waiting for a response on his availability and should he be able to come, there will be changes in the technical team.”
