Mamelodi Sundowns

Pitso: If We Benefitted, It’s About Time

After Mamelodi Sundowns were awarded a penalty that shouldn’t have been in their 2-1 Absa Premiership win over Stellenbosch FC on Wednesday night, coach Pitso Mosimane was naturally asked whether they had been given a helping hand by the match officials.

Mosimane himself has constantly complained about log leaders Kazier Chiefs “benefitting” from the error prone referees this season – but last night the tables turned.

Themba Zwane went flying in the penalty box, though there was no contact, and stood up to convert the spot kick when Downs were a goal behind at the time. 

“If we benefitted, why not? It’s about time. I shrug my shoulder – I even want an offside (goal) on Saturday,” Mosimane, referring to the Telkom Knockout final against Maritzburg United in Durban, told reporters.  

“And I will lift the trophy gladly. No problem. It’s the way it is at this point and I will take it. If I benefitted, we can minus it and we still stay on 2-1.” 

Stellenbosch also went a man down later in the second half, and – with more numbers – Sundowns punished them to grab all three points.

“We have to be honest also, we were helped by the red card. But they kicked us to pieces in the first half and I could see the red card coming,” the coach said.  

“I am not surprised – but it looks like he (Rivaldo Coetzee) hasn’t broken an ankle, but it’s bruised. Probably (Mogamad) De Goede will find time to apologise, you can’t end somebody’s career like that.”
