Mosimane: Imagine I Put Your Lights Off When You Come To South Africa...
Pitso Mosimane Has Commented On The Brazilians Being Unable To Train Due To The Lights Being Switch Off
Mamelodi Sundowns head coach, Pitso Mosimane has commented on the lights being switched off during their final training session prior to their CAF Champions League encounter.
The Brazilians were underway with their last session on Tuesday evening, where 10 minutes into their preparations, the lights in the venue were switched off, forcing Masandawana to call off training.
Speaking after their 0-0 draw against Rayon Sports in the first leg of the first round of the CAF Champions League competition, Head Coach Mosimane said that if they did, Rayon Sports did not need to go to the lengths that they did with regards to tampering with their training plans, as they are a good enough team to challenge in the competition.
“We don’t like to make excuses, yesterday (Tuesday) we didn’t train, it is not nice, it is not good for football, he is a CAF man he can tell you, you need to give the opponent a chance to train,” Mosimane told the media after the game.
“Because when you come to my country, imagine you come to my country and I do the same, I put the lights off? I am not saying that you put the lights off, I hope you understand but I am saying imagine you had to train the last match and then your lights are off. What are you going to say about me?
“It is not good for football. I think that you have a lovely country and a lovely team, you need to get rid of these things, you have a very good team to win, you don’t need the lights, the mental game, all those things. But, we’ve been in the Champions League for a long time, we don’t worry about that,” he added.
