Mngqithi: We Made A Stupid Mistake

By Soccer Laduma - Mar 13, 2018 10:11 PM

Despite seeing his side come from a goal behind to beat EC Bees FC 2-1 in the Nedbank Cup on Tuesday, Mamelodi Sundowns assistant coach Manqoba Mngqithi admits his side made a stupid mistake when conceding the first goal.

Still, Mngqithi praised the ABC Motsepe side and made special mention of their goalkeeper Khanya Mini, who scooped the Man of the Match award after a number of excellent saves during the match.

“The first half should have been a different story, we made a stupid mistake and got punished immediately for it,” said Mngqithi.

“From there we created a lot of good chances and we could have taken the lead, even from the first half. No wonder the goalkeeper was the man of the match, he kept them in the game.

“It is always scary when a small team is leading at that time of the game, but we had to be careful because if you go out they will catch you on the counter-attack.

“We knew that with time that they were going to tire and that is why at the end they were short. “They could not deal with the way our team was kicking the ball. Honestly, speaking like I said before, they are a very good team.

“I must thank the supporters for always supporting us. You would not think that when we are playing a small team that they will come in their numbers, so they need to be appreciated for what they are doing.”

There is a lot of talent both players and officials in our Country, South Africa which need to be found and developed. The problem is that all sporting codes are too much commercialized. Bosses and Official are on quick fix to gain MONEY quickly in order to be rich at the expense of our games. That also kills our National teams. We should not have foreign players, over aged for that manner in our development structures. Look some clubs have more than enough foreigners. I wish Ace Ncobo could be a winner at SAFA but for the fact that he is not a MAFIA, he won't. FIFA is full of MAFIAs.

Dunu knew that they will win. You could see by 6 bench warmers who started the match.
