The Mamelodi Sundowns coach has been vocal about Amakhosi “benefitting” from errors by referees, but he did admit that he expects them to be title challengers this season.

No. They come back from 1-0 or 2-1, they must be given credit. But there’s an angel there that is helping them,” Mosimane told reporters.

“Our defence was good, probably I can say the attack did not take their chances. But I am not worried, I am upset, of course. I am not happy we lost, but not unhappy in the matter the players fought to win the match. We must accept the things as they are. They tried to win, to score, but we missed a lot. We lost a tough game,” the added.
