Tembo: I Think Sundowns' First Goal Was Offside

SuperSport United head coach Kaitano Tempo felt Mamelodi Sundowns' opening goal should have been flagged offside.

SuperSport lost further ground on the leading pack in the Absa Premiership following a 2-1 loss to Sundowns on Sunday afternoon.

While he did feel Sundowns' first goal should have been disallowed, Tembo admits his charges did not defend well on the day.

"Look I think there were two things, the first one we didn't have a good start, we were negative especially in possession, we never really wanted to go forward, to give them a little bit of problems defensively," Tembo told SuperSport after the match.

"So they were very comfortable, especially their centre-backs, they could build-up from the back because there's wasn't really pressure.

"And whenever we went forward, I think the final decision was bad, we chose the wrong options and it's either we rushed and the second thing was that our pressing wasn't good," he went on.

"Defending the cross because they scored from two crosses, the first one I thought it was offside I'm not so sure about that but I think it was offside. Nevertheless, we didn't defend well.

"The second goal, we didn't defend well as well, not stopping the cross and not defending the cross, that's how they scored, that's how the game was won. But I think we became a little bit brave especially when we brought in [Ghampani Lungu] and [Thamsanqa] Gabuza. We were a little bit adventurous, we gave them problems a little bit.

'It's disappointing to drop the three points, we wanted the points badly, especially at this time of the season but still we have to credit the players, they kept on fighting, they went a little bit hard and we'll keep on fighting until the end."
