Mosimane Explains Kekana, Zwane & Sirino Substitutions

Mamelodi Sundowns’ Pitso Mosimane has explained why he substituted some of his best players during the team's most recent match against Black Leopards on Tuesday. 

The Brazilians earned a crucial win against Lidoda Duvha at the Thohoyandou Stadium on Tuesday evening to move to same number of points (53) with Orlando Pirates at the top of the Absa Premiership log.

Gaston Sirino and Tebogo Langerman scored the goals for the Chloorkop outfit as they beat Leopards 2-1. 

Mosimane explained why he took out Sirino later in the match, as well as club captain Hlompho Kekana and Themba Zwane, who is arguably the team’s top performer this season. 

“No one has a program like Mamelodi Sundowns in the country, hence we always play against well-rested teams. That’s why Black Leopards were quicker than us, faster and winning the second balls because we didn’t have the freshness and the legs to match them in their game. We had to manage the game and the legs, especially in the second half and you can also see from the substitutions we made, we had to rest some players like Hlompho Kekana, Themba Zwane and Gaston Sirino because we need them again in the CAF Champions League match against Wydad,” Mosimane has been quoted on Downs’ official website.
