Sundowns remain six points behind Absa Premiership leaders Kaizer Chiefs after suffering a 3-2 loss to the Citizens on Monday night.

When the benches emerged from the tunnel, Mosimane was talking with another member of the opposition coaching staff and he reveals there was some heated words shared with City head coach Jan Olde Riekerink.

"Ja, another difficult game for us. We made mistakes, the third goal was the one we really made a big mistake because the game was still on, it was still alive and we could come back, that's why we scored another one you know. Difficult for us but it's okay, we move on," Mosimane told SuperSport after the match.

"Kermit Erasmus is a very smart player, you have to give him credit he knows how to play between the lines, how to drop in, credit to him. It's handbags on the bench, even in the tunnel, it's okay. I had to stand up to the Dutch coach.

"It worries us [six points behind Kaizer Chiefs in the title race] but look we will fight for it and if we're not getting it, we're not getting it you know. We try, we will try to win it for the third time [in a row], it is not easy. You can't have what you want. What's your wish?

"The game goes how it goes, if it is not gonna be for us, it's not gonna be for us and ja we move on. If we don't find it, we will fight for the Nedbank Cup, it's okay. This is football, these things do happen, you can't win everything but we will fight for everything."
