Mosimane Bemoans Poor Finishing Despite Win

Mosimane Bemoans Poor Finishing Despite Win

By Soccer Laduma - Mar 18, 2018 09:21 PM

Despite an impressive display from Mamelodi Sundowns which saw them beat Rayon Sports 2-0 to reach the CAF Champions League group stages, coach Pitso Mosimane was not happy with his side’s finishing on Sunday night.

Goals from Wayne Arendse and Sibusiso Vilakazi handed the Tshwane giants victory in the second leg and secured passage into the group stages.

“We could have done better in terms of the final stages, in the final attacking phase,” Mosimane told SuperSport after the game.

“We had lots of long and short passes but did not control the ball inside the box. The passes were good, but the technique of handling the ball was not very good.”

The Brazilians coach, though, did praise his team for their effort overall.

“What was pleasing for me was in the first half on a bad, rain-soaked pitch the boys showed integrity and they fought,” added Mosimane.

“Their mentality was different from other games that we have been playing lately. On a pitch like this they never complained, especially playing against strong boys.

“I don’t care about the second half because the pitch was okay and we could play our own game, but the first half they showed integrity. They showed that they can play in the Champions League.

“Our combination up front with Percy (Tau) and (Sibusiso) Vilakazi is happening. When Percy isn’t scoring then Vilakazi is coming and scoring, and Gaston (Sirino) is finding his way. (Themba) Zwane and (Hlompho) Kekana were unbelievable in the midfield. Ricardo (Nascimento) at the back was solid. Denis (Onyango) in the first half kept us in the game.

“This is Champions League, we must play under any conditions, we don’t complain, and we try win at home.

“As long as you score two goals at home, it doesn’t matter what happens when you play away.”

“It's good we won. The team showed that they are not only shoe-shine, they fight.”

I am frustrated by the Boys' application in front of goals. They are making things difficult for themselves.
