Ted Dumitru or Pitso Mosimane as Best-Ever Soccer Manager?
Dumitru or Mosimane? Who is your online gamble real money on? Both have racked up 18 trophies apiece but only one man can improve on that. Is Jingles the greatest African coach of all-time? Or do the honours go to the late Bucharest-born tactician?
Managing the Luminaries of South African Football
Soccer is the lifeblood of South African sports. It is where legends like Lucas Radebe, Doc Khumalo, Aaron Mokoena and Benni McCarthy were born. The truth is, without the careful mentorship of skilled and technically astute managers, many of the luminaries of local soccer may never have performed at their best.
As with all football mad nations, South Africa has been blessed with a select group of men who have taken their clubs to the next level. Guys like Gavin Hunt, Gordon Igesund, Eric Tinkler and Stuart Baxter have all left an indelible mark on local football.
Mr Magic versus Jingles Mosimane
Every once in a while, someone or something truly special comes along. In the context of online gamble real money platforms, that something is Springbok Casino. In the world of ibhola ekhatywayo, ibhola likanobhutshuzwayo, sokker or soccer, it is Ted ‘Mr Magic’ Dumitru and our Egyptian export, Pitso Mosimane, who take top billing!
Let’s take a brief look at the careers and achievements of the two contenders for the best-ever mantle.
Ted Dumitru – South African Coaching Career 1985 to 2006
With a coaching pedigree spanning clubs, countries, continents and eras, Dumitru was the consummate professional. He also had a lifelong love affair with Africa. He was hand-picked by Kaizer Motaung to lead the Amakhosi in 1985 and apart from brief spells in Azerbaijan and Namibia, the Romanian adopted South Africa as his own.
Kaizer Chiefs – Eight Trophies
It was his cerebral and meticulous approach to coaching that initially turned heads. His technique immediately paid dividends. Over a period of just three years – the first of two spells with Chiefs – Dumitru amassed an unassailable eight trophies; two BP Top Eight Cups, two Coca Cola Cups, one Mainstay Cup and three Charity Spectacular Cups!

Mamelodi Sundowns – Four Trophies
In 1997, Dumitru signed up with Gauteng giants, Mamelodi Sundowns and immediately struck gold. He snapped up the first of two back-to-back Premier Soccer League (PSL) titles with the Brazilians and added the Nedbank Cup and Rothmans Cup to the total tally. In statistical terms, that is four pieces of silverware in three years.
Dumitru moved on to Orlando Pirates and Manning Rangers but had little to show for his efforts. It was as if the magician had lost his touch… but not for long. A move back to Sundowns saw the Brazilians reaching the CAF Champions League final for the first time, a match they lost to Egyptian club, Al Ahly.
Four Premier Soccer League Titles
In 2003, the Romanian came full circle, joining Kaizer Chiefs for a second time. His crowning glory was successive PSL titles, followed by four league cups! Ted Dumitru is one of only four managers to claim four league titles. Only Pitso Mosimane has bettered that!
Dumitru’s achievements in numbers:
- Vodacom Challenge (1)
- Top Eight Cup (2)
- Coca-Cola Cup (4)
- Mainstay Cup (1)
- Charity Spectacular Cup (4)
- Rothmans Cup (1)
- Nedbank Cup (1)
- PSL title (4)
Is that the kind of record deserving of online gamble real money gold? We will leave it up to you decide but we suggest you check out what Pitso Mosimane has achieved to date – and it is pretty impressive, even by Springbok Casino’s high standards!
Pitso Mosimane – South African Coaching Career 2001 – 2020
The former midfielder for Jomo Cosmos, Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates may have finetuned his management skills on local football but he has become a rising star in Africa. His most recent achievement was leading Egyptian giants, Al Ahly to their tenth CAF Champions League title, and their second under his tutelage.
Mosimane started his career with local underdogs Supersport United. He soon moved up the ranks and signed up with Mamelodi Sundowns, following a brief spell as caretaker manager of the national side, Bafana Bafana.
Mamelodi Sundowns – A Golden Era
During his nine-year tenure with the Brazilians, Jingles claimed five PSL titles, one CAF Champions League title, one CAF Super Cup and four league trophies. It was a golden era for the Kagiso born coach and one that earned him a long list of personal accolades, including five-time PSL Coach of the Season and two-time CAF Coach of the Year awards.
Ranked 10th in the World
At the height of his career with Sundowns, Mosimane was ranked the tenth best coach in the world. Today he is the only coach to have made a clean sweep of all the domestic trophies in the Premier Soccer League. Although Mosimane is currently head coach of Al Ahly in Egypt, the odds are he will return to South Africa and improve on his stellar record.
For what it is worth, my online gamble real money is on our home-grown coach to go onto much greater things. It may be right here in South Africa. Or, if the rules are changed, Pitso Mosimane could easily end up at a topflight club in Europe!
Here is a snapshot of Mosimane’s achievements:
- Nedbank Cup (3)
- Super Eight Cup (1)
- Telkom Knockout Cup (2)
- PSL title (5)
- CAF Champions League (1)
- CAF Super Cup (1)
