Despite being under a huge amount of pressure from the fans to win, Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane said he was not happy to beat his former mentor Jomo Sono.
A brace from Keagan Dolly handed Sundowns a 2-0 win over Jomo Cosmos in a league match at Olen Park.
“It is a bit emotionally for me playing against ‘Bra J’,” said Mosimane.
“It is not nice and I am not happy to win against him, but we are under pressure and we needed the three points.
“It is business and we had to do it.”
Despite picking up their third win in the league, Mosimane admits his side is not playing the best football.
“We are playing in drips and drabs, we are not really, really convincing, but that is because of pressure,” added Mosimane.
“The players are feeling the pressure that we have to win and we don’t want to make mistakes.
“We have been crying about keeping zero behind and speaking about keeping zero behind, and we kept zero behind today.
“I am happy about Keagan Dolly and the goals he scored.
“The goals we scored is not luck, especially the first one. We have been working on that move for him to get there and he got there.
“The second goal, when Anthony (Laffor) comes in as a super-sub, he likes the space and when we go out on the break we sealed it.
“What is important is to win.
“Yes, we are not playing very well, I am aware of that.
“I know Sundowns can play better than this, but at this point in time we are grinding out results and we need the supporters behind us.”
