Mamelodi Sundowns

Pitso: Other People Focus On One Thing

After their 1-0 defeat to Orlando Pirates last week, coach Pitso Mosimane gave the impression that Mamelodi Sundowns had thrown in the towel on the Absa Premiership title race as the reigning champions slipped nine points behind Kaizer Chiefs.

But with Amakhosi only managing a draw away to Black Leopards at the weekend and Sundowns beating SuperSport United, he is singing a different tune!

“May is too far, we can drop points again. Imagine if we didn’t drop points against Pirates and Bidvest Wits twice. It says this thing is still alive, that is the reality,” Mosimane told reporters after his side’s 2-1 win in the Tshwane derby.

The Downs mentor then argued that Chiefs, however, had the advantage because they were not campaigning in any CAF tournaments, unlike both Sundowns and Wits.  

“But you are distracted because you look there and other people are just looking at one thing. Maybe (Gavin) Hunt will disturb them twice because they will have Wits, they have Pirates and they have us. But they are on honeymoon, give them respect,” Mosimane added.

“I’d like to talk about Wits because they run the same race as us. They are not a well-rested team. We are going to Luanda, and Wits were in Egypt against a Libyan team. It’s very difficult to focus on the league and be number one in the Champions League, and now there will be the Nedbank Cup against SuperSport United again. They focused on cups until Gavin Hunt came and won three league titles in a row. Let’s respect that.”
