The former AmaZulu and Golden Arrows coach recognised the Kaizer Chiefs duo of Zwane and Dillon Sheppard, Baroka’s Vincent Kobola as well as Kurt Lentjies at Chippa United.
“I think coaches like Arthur and Dillon, Kobola at Baroka, if you look at the change they have made in a very short space of time, it requires that our South African media must also try and be a little bit less pessimistic towards our people,” Mngqithi said via iDiskiTimes.
“I think they deserve an opportunity and the support from you guys in the media because I do believe South African coaches are really showing [up].
“Look at Kurt Lentjies at Chippa, what he is doing – the team looks good, Kobola is doing very well and Arthur/Dillon [in a] very short space of time.
“I do believe it is in that way, that we will even improve the quality of football, even in our national team, because if our games are not second ball and set pieces, it’s football and we are giving the chances to our own people, I’m definitely sure can take a very good direction.
“That’s my wish, we must try and be supportive to our people and not always point a gun at our South African coaches, please,” he concluded.
