Mosimane: Memela Should’ve Won The MOTM Award

Mosimane: Memela Should’ve Won The MOTM Award

By Soccer Laduma - Jan 13, 2018 07:44 PM
Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane believes the man of the match award should’ve gone to Luvuyo Memela and not Jackson Mabokgwane.
The Bafana Bafana international walked away with the accolade after an impressive display, erasing last season’s horror show where he conceded six to the very same opposition.
“I’m happy we can sing with the supporters. Last time I wasn’t happy, but today I’m happy because they gave everything. But I’m not happy with the man of the match.
“I don’t know who chooses man of the match. My man of the match is Memela. The guy (Mabokgwane) sleeps on the floor all the time, stops the game for five minutes and then wins man of the match. I don’t know who chooses man of the match at SuperSport. That’s just my opinion,” Mosimane told SuperSport after the game.
The start to the game and how it unfolded overall was what the former Bafana Bafana coach expected, but he rues the missed chance of Anthony Laffor midway in the second half.
“It was a very good game. It came out as expected. It was a lot of transitions and I thought we dealt with that, we know they are good at the breaks.
“We should’ve scored, had Laffor scored it could’ve been different, but it’s football. We controlled the game, that’s good we showed who we are at home. The integrity was there,” he said.
Ntsikelelo Nyauza, who got the opening goal, received a yellow card in the second half for tugging back Percy Tau on the edge of the box, the Downs mentor has a different view on the matter.
“I think the referee was wrong to give only a yellow when Percy was through on goal. I’ll hear from Ace (Ncobo, TV referee expert) but they probably gave a yellow because there was someone who could’ve covered for Percy, but I think it was a red,” he said.

Who cares about who you choose? Sore looser. U are mad at Mabokgwane bcoz hes the reason u couldnt score, Memela should have atleast scored 2 goals, and for that he cant be given MOTM. Sundowns MOTM was Manyisa with 4/10 rating

Pitso focus on Sundowns and leave other things to other people!! Jackson did a wonderful job against your fat cats players. He was between defeat and win and rightfully he earned the man of the match award. Why not give Memela your award of man of the match? By the way he also proved handful against your overrated stars. Just shut up.You were outplayed until you ran out ideas.

@roger-fetumba He is complaining and complementing at the same time. However, the foundation of his compliment is based on complaining and making excuses. Jackson Mabokgwane was the undoubtedly the MOTM but Pitso feels he didn't deserve it because of time wasting.
