PITSO MOSIMANE PAYS TRIBUTE TO RIKY RICK
While Mzansi is still reeling in disbelief, tributes have been pouring in from hundreds of musicians, actors, and fashion artists across South Africa, Africa as well as the United States. The messages of condolences have now crossed over to football, with the major figure of Pitso Mosimane sending his love to the fallen artist.
Soon after making history at the FIFA Club World Cup as the first African coach to win back-to-back bronze medals at the event, the coach who is better known as ‘Jingles’ took to social media to mourn Riky Rick.
Pitso Mosimane revealed that the late musician had always supported him. The coach added to say Riky Ricky will be remembered for his music, humility, and as a champion of youth opportunities.
“My sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Riky Rick,” the local football icon and former Bafana Bafana coach said.
“What a loss. He was always good to me and supported me. He will be remembered through his music and humility. A true game-changer always looking to uplift the youth,” he added.
WATCH: AL AHLY FANS SING PITSO’S NAME
Pitso Mosimane has achieved what many men have failed to do, he has earned the adoration of the unforgiving Al Ahly fans. This is thanks to his rather fast success at Africa’s greatest ever club.
Al Ahly fans are infamous for extreme impatience and ruthless rejection of coaches, but South Africa’s Pitso Mosimane does not really know anything about that.
The former Mamelodi Sundowns needed just about three seasons to become an instant legend in Cairo.
