Mosimane: I've Seen De Gea Make Bigger Mistakes

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane does not blame goalkeeper Reyaad Pieterse for his side dropping points, and claimed the likes of Petr Cech and David de Gea also make mistakes.

The Brazilians played to a 3-3 draw against AmaZulu and Pieterse was largely to blame for his side’s second goal which saw him fumble the ball into the path of Jabulani Ncobeni who duly scored.

Speaking after the match Mosimane said that everyone makes mistakes, "I’ve seen Petr Čech make a mistake. I’ve seen (David) De Gea make a bigger mistake than that. I’ve seen Denis Onyango make a mistake. I’ve seen Itumeleng Khune make a mistake. So it’s okay, he (Pieterse) is allowed to make a mistake," he told SuperSport.

“Who doesn’t make mistakes? Unfortunately, when a goalkeeper makes a mistake, he is the last man so we should understand it.”

Sundowns are up against Golden Arrows next in the league when they meet on Wednesday in midweek and Mosimane is looking forward to the challenge.

“We have to try again against arrows,” added the Sundowns coach.

“If you score three goals away then you should be able to win, but that was not the case against AmaZulu.

“I’m glad we got to play football. Cavin Johnson plays football well, Benny McCarthy plays well, Steve Khomphela is playing well, it’s good for the local coaches.

“The product is good and that’s what we need to watch, it’s the kind of game we like.

“Unfortunately, the three goals conceded, I wonder if I can analyse because the ball was falling off of this one and that one and they score, but it’s okay. I’m happy my team scored three goals.”
