Davids On Why Pitso Is The Best
Davids Showers Mosimane With Praise
Maritzburg United coach Fadlu Davids has praised Mamelodi Sundowns Pitso Mosimane for the way he analysed the Team of Choice.
Maritzburg came from behind on two occasions to earn themselves a 2-2 draw with the Brazilians on Wednesday evening. Davids was pleased with how his side remained calm to get back in the game and also hailed Mosimane for his game plan.
"That is why he [Mosimane] is the best. To start the game the he did to analyse us to the tee and to get the early goal by pressing us really high," Mosimane told SuperSport after the game.
"Well done to Sundowns in terms of their analysis but the next point is similar to the cup game, you keep your thinking. Don't drop your head, you tactically just change the structure and then we took control of the game in the first half. I can't commend the players more, they were absolutely fantastic this evening.
"This game was chess. You change formation, they change their structure and really, how the players handled it to be put under pressure in the first 10 minutes of the game and then to keep calm and keep your structure, don't lose your thinking and stay in the game.
"Then you go down again from a set-piece which you analyse but then again, be calm, don't throw long-balls - that's not our style. To keep the calm, to keep the think and believe in how we want to do things and finally we go the goal."
