Shauwn Mkhize's Royal AM to 'steal' Sundowns coach: He is angry after they demoted him


Mamelodi Sundowns could lose of their coaches to Reality TV show star Shauwn Mkhize's Royal AM some time in 2023, if media reports are anything to go by.

Manqoba Mngqithi, who was recently demoted by Sundowns to the role of Senior Coach, is reportedly earmarked by Royal AM.

However, there is no formal approach from Royal AM as they are closely monitoring the team’s progress under the leadership of Khabo Zondo and Abram Nteo.

According to Soccer Laduma, Mngqithi is weighing up his options as he is no longer happy at Sundowns following the reshuffling of the technical team.

His agent, Mike Makaab, has already confirmed that Mngqithi’s contract with Sundowns is coming to an end in June 2023.

And the former Golden Arrows man could be tempted to jump ship and leave Rhulani Mokwena and Steve Komphela at Sundowns.


“The Siya crew has gathered information that Mngqithi has a few suitors in the DStv Premiership with Royal AM believed to be one of them,” reports the publication.

“Soccer Laduma has been led to believe that Royal AM have earmarked Mngqithi for a coaching position at the club although they have not held formal talks with his representatives,” added the article.
