Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane was seemingly not impressed with Fortune Makaringe's showboating.
Sundowns lost ground on Absa Premiership leaders Kaizer Chiefs after a 1-0 loss to Orlando Pirates at Orlando Stadium on Wednesday night.
While Mosimane had no big issues with his side's display on the night, he did take issue with Makaringe's showboating during the second half with the Soweto giants leading.
"Ja difficult, on the results only, not the game. We came here and played as usual. Not happy because it's my first defeat here in seven years, I thought I'd keep the results, they've been good," Mosimane told SuperSport after the match.
"But it's okay, they went once Denis [Onyango] was still on Christmas break there. But we came, we played, we controlled the game, we took the game to them, we showed [that] we're a championship team.
"First five-ten minutes the ghost did not allow us to score tonight, the ghost was there everything, even the balls went there, they were cleared off the lines, we hit the post once, twice and the ghost took the ball out, I mean really what else can you do at Orlando Stadium?
"Look, it's okay they also need a break, they are a good team we must give them credit. A good game, just upset with one thing that happened on the pitch, not good for football, it's my opinion okay. I hope it's not good for Molefi Ntseki because he's here, you know what I'm trying to say?
"Okay the good thing is Fadlu [Davids] came and he apologised. You know it's good for Maimane Phiri's Games and Baba Mthethwa's Games, we love it. Probably it's going to be the flavour of the moment, kasi flavour but it's the way it is. I don't want to criticise or kill the youngster because he had a good game but it's okay."
