'Let The League Go Where It’s Supposed To Go'

'Let the league go where it’s supposed to go,' Pitso Mosimane said after Mamelodi Sundowns dropped to third spot in the Absa Premiership standings.

Sundowns remain six points behind league leaders Orlando Pirates after suffering a 2-0 defeat to SuperSport United on Wednesday evening.

Mosimane claimed the gap could widen once the case involving defender Wayne Arendse is brought to a conclusion.

“It [the gap] can become more wider [once] the prosecutor has decided how many points is giving to who. My opinion? Leave the league. I feel sorry for Masandawana. We have to give our best but if your best is not good enough," Mosimane told SuperSport after the game.
 
“But SuperSport deserved the win. They were fresher. We played against a well rested team. Even the lead we’re challenging, we’re challenging with a well rested team. But it’s not an excuse. We put ourselves in a position like this. Imagine if we were playing Nedbank Cup. You can’t have everything, Masandawana must fight for big titles.
 
“I want the boys to go for it and give it a try. It’s me myself [who’s reluctant to prioritise the league]. It’s sad for football that every season with a few games left you don’t know how many points you have, so the league [title] let it go to the team that is supposed to get it.
 
“Let’s try the [CAF] Champions League and [I’ll] put my energies on that. But you never know, sometimes the football gods can change fortunes around and then we may have a chance and you’ll say I let it go earlier, I should have kept going. But it’s OK, let the league [title] go where it’s supposed to go."
