Pitso’s Sundowns, Madrid Analogy

Pitso Mosimane Has Explained How Important It Is To Play On The African Continent

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 03, 2018 09:49 AM

Pitso Mosimane has highlighted some of the differences between South African teams and on the rest of the African continent, saying that experience will always win.

Mamelodi Sundowns claimed a 2-1 win over Cape Town City in the quarter-finals of the Nedbank Cup competition, with Head Coach Mosimane saying that his side is more focused on scoring the goals and getting the results, than playing exciting football, a lesson learnt from playing on the African continent.

“Our people still have to understand, continental football is totally different from this game and the opponents don’t look too good on the ball and exciting as (Surprise) Ralani, (Ayanda) Patosi, they don’t have that. They just move slowly and manage the game,” Mosimane told the media.

“And we have learnt a lot, you’ll see when we play Wydad (Casablanca), they don’t care about many things, they are just organized, there is a different game,” he said.

The Sundowns’ head coach then went on to further explain his statement, by adding that the same way Real Madrid claimed a UEFA Champions League win over PSG with experience, his side managed the same over City with theirs.

“Back home, we love exciting football, frills and it is good for TV and supporters who come to the match. But sometimes, sometimes you just have to score the goals, you saw Real Madrid playing PSG, Real Madrid, I am talking about a big team, they just had to score the goals in Paris and then that’s it, that’s why Mbappe said they won with experience.

“So, we won with experience, but it is very difficult, I can’t explain it, Wits have been trying to go to group stages (of the CAF Champions League) and then you look at the opponents and ask, but how could they lose?” Mosimane added.

I would love to hear from who ever is disputing that Pitso is the best coach in mzatsi to name his finest. I think Jingles deserve some respect. From technical team, he picked people with same ideas as his and players he picked those they need. At SS united he wont trophies at Bafana 0 @Sundowns he won trophies. You can not win CL and SC if u are not. Wits invested in Keet, Schilo,Gamal and other to win trophies

@JackKhosi no my broer don't go too far, maybe the figure of speech that is used by Pitso mislead your way of thinking. Pitso is still a student in the game he always learn by his or if not our mistakes

@Junero what is Mtubatuba? Is that a name of a person or a dog? I dont envy anything bro, this Pitso is in a high horse now, He thinks he is better than SA football now. We all remember the days wen he was being escorted out of matches, Mngqithi saved his sorry ass but he never praises him. I cant wait for the moment wen Mngqithi will be offered a job as a head coach, so that Pitso's black ass will be out in the open for everyone to see.

@MjakajakaWeKhosi currently i am in New York (USA), although you are in Mtubatuba i can smell your rotten jealousy and envy. How can you admire Cowne's zebrish tactics, awuna-line kanjani

@Sam4Downs Maybe the term "same whatsapp group" should be put in the dictionary for everyone to read it down and have a thorough understanding of the term. Cos i think people have a different understanding

This Pitso thinks he is Guardiola now. We know the real Pitso is a cry baby, Always complaining. But bcos his team is in form, South African football is no longer exciting. When his team loses, he says nothing about SA football nor Sundowns, the blame goes straight to refrees and opponents. I cant wait to meet them on the Nedbank cup if we are to meet them. I just wish we could score one goal on the 70th minute or above. And have Khune do what he does best, lie down for 7 minutes. I just wanna see Pitso cry, "You saw Khune was wasting time and the refree didnt book him" Thats your Pitso.
