De Sa: We Were Second Best All Round

By Soccer Laduma - Jan 20, 2018 09:59 PM
Platinum Stars head coach Roger de Sa felt his side never 'showed up' against Mamelodi Sundowns.
Dikwena remain rooted to the foot of the Absa Premiership table following their 3-0 defeat to the Brazilians on Saturday evening.
"I thought we were second-best all round. We can't complain too much. You could argue that the second half was better the damage was done already. They probably took the foot off the accelerator a bit and we were up against it from the word-go," De Sa told SuperSport TV after the match.
"I thought Vilakazi's goal was a cracker we can't take that away from him and the free-kicks were great goals we can't argue too much. Overall we weren't up to it. We never showed up and the quality [of Sundowns] showed up.
"We did get better in the second half but it was not good enough when you're 3-0 down at halftime against a quality team like Sundowns away from home it's too much to climb. We have to take our hats off to them. They were great and have a fantastic squad. They've got every player that's available. Well done to them."
De Sa shared his views on the reports about the club being put up for a sale.
"We hear the rumours the same as you read. Exactly the same. No different. Everyday we see the newspaper and we read something else but the club is for sale it will probably be taken over soon but until then we gotta battle on and see what we can do, " he added.
"The players are paid everyone is contracted. Nothing has changed. We keep on going the same way nothing has changed."
