Mazembe Coach Won’t Sit Back In Pretoria
SuperSport United will have to put in a performance against TP Mazembe this weekend, with their head coach, Pamphile Mihayo, saying that they won’t be sitting back.
The Congolese giants are taking a 2-1 lead to Tshwane on Saturday after they managed to overcome the South African side in the first leg over the weekend, but Sipho Mbule’s away goal has given Eric Tinkler and his team hope for the return leg.
Mihayo, a former Mazembe player and CAF Champions League winner, told the media after the encounter in Lubumbashi that they would be going on the offensive in order to make sure that they get a result.

He said, “I’m happy with the result. We won the game, we didn’t lose or draw. We’re going to try and at 100% for the return game.
“We must play in Pretoria. If we go there only content to stay back and play in the defensive part of the field then it’s going to be very difficult for us because the opponent can always put you under pressure. After that, you’re going to conceded goals.”
SuperSport face Mazembe at 20h15 on Saturday at Lucas Moripe Stadium.
