Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi has helped the side to a club-record 22-game unbeaten run in all competitions, but it is not the only DStv Premiership side at which he has achieved this feat.
Mngqithi, along with co-coach Rhulani Mokwena and senior coach Steve Komphela, has Sundowns on course for a treble this season as they ease towards the quarterfinals of the CAF Champions League, sit pretty on top of the Premiership and are still in the Nedbank Cup. He has seamlessly overcome the blow of former head coach Pitso Mosimane leaving for Egyptian giants Al Ahly, using his experience as a head coach picked up in previous spells in charge of Lamontville Golden Arrows and AmaZulu. And remarkably, Mngqithi led both those Durban sides on their record unbeaten runs in the Premier Soccer League too.
Golden Arrows were unbeaten in 12 matches between April and September 2009 (W7 D5) for what remains their longest run without defeat in the PSL.
