Pitso Mosimane has been very vocal about teams 'benefiting' from refereeing blunders while ironically waiting for his turn to benefit.
Finally, his wish was granted at the expense of Maritzburg United. The Team of Choice gave Sundowns a run for their millions in the Telkom Knockout final. The Absa Premiership Champions were the worthy winners, granted their dominance over Eric Tinkler's side.
'Jingles' has benefited in two consecutive games. Mosimane admitted to having benefited from a referee's mistake after his side's league victory over Stellenbosch on Wednesday. The reigning coach of the year declared that he had to 'benefit' at least five times this season. Now he got his second, three to go.
Judas Moseamedi was wrongly judged offside at the tail end of the game and was denied his brace on the day. The goal poacher is loving life under Tinkler. Despite a goal that was flagged for offside, Sundowns were far the better team on the day.
The Brazilians experience came to the fore and Maritzburg couldn't match that. Pitso Mosimane's charges showed character when they recovered from a goal down to clinch the Telkom Knockout title for the second time in four years.
