Pitso Mosimane has blamed himself for Mamelodi Sundowns’ draw in their most recent match against Chippa United.
The Brazilians could have been on six points with Absa Premiership’s pacesetters Bidvest Wits, Kaizer Chiefs and Polokwane City, had the team not conceded a late goal in their 1-1 draw against Chippa at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Wednesday night.
The Sundowns coach has admitted to having made a mistake with one of his decisions towards the end of the match as the Chloorkop outfit was leading 1-0 against Clinton Larsen’s side.
“Obviously we are disappointed because I think we dropped two points. I think it was my fault, I should have sealed the game. We should have used experience in the last three minutes,” the coach has been quoted on Sundowns’ official website.
“But I opted to go for Phakamani (Mahlambi) as an attacker instead of maybe doing a sub that will keep the results. I guess the game led me and deceived me because I could see we could score the second goal, forgetting that there is maybe two or three minutes to go. I think we became a little bit greedy. We scored the second goal against SuperSport a little bit late in our opening game and thought maybe we could steal this one the same,” Mosimane added.
The Brazilians have switched focus to their MTN8 quarter-final match against Bloemfontein Celtic at the Lucas Moripe Stadium this Saturday.
