Pitso: If It's Offside, I Benefited And I Have No Shame!

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane says he has no shame benefiting from the refereeing decisions that went his way in the Telkom Knockout final.

Sundowns claimed their first trophy of the season after coming from behind to defeat Maritzburg United 2-1 in the final on Saturday evening.

There was a controversial penaly awarded to Sundowns in the win over Stellenbosch midweek, while there was late drama in the final when Maritzburg's Judas Moseamedi's strike in second-half stoppage time was ruled out for offside.

"My heart stopped, I thought it's a goal, thanks God I saw the linesman raising the flag, I don't know if it's offside or not, if it's not, I benefited and I have no shame!" Mosimane told SuperSport after the game.

"Some people have been getting all these benefits, I will get them, I want them for five games in a row. I've got no shame on that. It is the way it is in this Premier League, it's a jungle!," he went on.

"I didn't see that [penalty appeal for Sundowns in the first-half], I have to be honest but look I've got no emotions, I've got cold nerves on the refereeing the way it happens in the country, if I have to benefit five games in a row I'll glady take it home because people have done it in a series of games, so it's my chance, congratulations to Mamelodi Sundowns, we've won it and fairly with good goals and that's it, we lift the trophy, no stories!"
