What a guy. Pitso Mosimane spoke fluent Greek and acted as the agent of Mamelodi Sundowns’ former terrific defender Frank Schoeman. The Al Ahly coach once planned to build an agency company after completing his playing career in Europe.

There were many top central defenders at Sundowns in the late 90s and early 2000s, but Schoeman stands out as one of the most fabulous number 5s.

The Cape Town-born player has now remembered how Pitso Mosimane created his move from Mthatha Bush Bucks to Sundowns. 

The former Bafana Bafana star says he was on the verge of joining the Buccaneers, but a delay urged him to ask ‘Jingles’ to look elsewhere.

“I felt I needed to go and see what is happening in Johannesburg, so I then went to Pirates as per Bush Bucks’ demands,” Schoeman said via Kick Off.

“At Pirates, I met up with Pitso Mosimane, who was my agent, after he called me and told me about this company that he was working for following his return from Europe.

“I spent a week at Pirates and then asked Pitso if there was another team in Johannesburg that I could go to since it was taking too long at Pirates. 

“I spoke to him about Sundowns and since he (Mosimane) could speak fluent Greek a week later I signed for Sundowns (who had Greek influence in their management at the time) with Ted Dumitru having seen me at Bush Bucks,” he added.
