Masinga: Wits Took Advantage Of Sundowns

Phil Masinga Bemoans Timing Of Sundowns' Finals

By Soccer Laduma - Oct 04, 2016 09:09 AM

Mamelodi Sundowns legend, Phil Masinga has said that Bidvest Wits took advantage of his former team’s split focus between the MTN8 and CAF Champions League finals.

Ruthless Wits Sink Downs To Clinch MTN8 Crown

Sundowns lost 3-0 to Bidvest Wits in the MTN8 final on Saturday at the Mbombela Stadium, with only two weeks to spare before they play Zamalek in the CAF Champions League final. Masinga believes that the Brazilians were at a disadvantage as a result of this.

“At times it’s not good to be in two finals at the same time, because it becomes difficult to focus on both finals,” he told the Siya crew. “That's why I think Sundowns had two minds and Wits took advantage of that.”

Masinga did have something positive to add, however, saying that his former team now have time to rest and regroup, with the upcoming international break providing respite.

“They have time to rest and focus on the Champions League final,” the Bafana Bafana legend concluded.

I sometimes find it very surprising about fans focussing more on rival teams then their own inconsistent underperforming teams! Yes Sundowns lost to a more better & well prepared team! & Yes Sundowns managed to reach 2cup finals in a short space of time of which ur team can only dream of reaching the same mile stone! I'm talking about being 7th time league champs with a PSL record of 71points after 30 games! What are ur team's chances of winning the league? Here is the Telkom cup of which Downs are the defending champs, what are ur team's chances of winning this cup? What about the nedbank cup?

29th October 2016, we will see the big teams in SA, fill the 95 000 fnb stadium, yes the rivalry will always be there as it has always been, for now we are still celebrating Wits showboating win over dunus and that's our common ground. Now allow me to say Wits 3 and dunusa fc zero, nnoto, qanda, lehe, bhokorol.

Thanks to Bidvest Wits, Rats and Zebra fans are sleeping under one blanket. It won't be long before they have a go at each other, swearing and trading insults like nobody's bussines.

Never mind Masandawana even dogs do bark at a moving car. No team will ever dominate others for ever. Remember how Zebras used to bully other teams in the 80s. These days they are just an ordinary team with a large fan base.

I am not completely convinced with Tiyani Mabunda the boy is a good marker but his offensive play is not complementary to the sundowns way he is the achilles heel of this great team

Well, I must say that he has a point. But in all this, credit must be given to the winning team for playing well on the day because Wits did play well on the day. Congratulations are in order for Wits.

Then they should report it to the police. After all their style of play is not of PSL status, they should use pirates as a reference.
