Mosimane Wants More From Tau

Mosimane Wants More From Tau

By Soccer Laduma - Dec 16, 2017 06:24 PM

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane feels there is still room for improvement despite their big win over Bloemfontein Celtic.

Sundowns extended their winning run in the Absa Premiership to seven matches after defeating Celtic 4-1 on Saturday afternoon.

“When we are home and we win like this we get confidence,” Mosimane told SuperSport after the game.

“I think we instil confidence in our home games because we have a 100 percent record. Our runaway has been better. Three at home now, we are getting better.

“All the games we play are tight, even Maritzburg (in midweek which we won), but you have to score the goals, if you don’t score then you can’t win.”

“It is important to score goals at home. It is one step at a time.”

Mosimane also offered some words of advice for Percy Tau who created a goal, scored one and was duly handed the ‘Man of the Match’ award for his efforts.

“We had the opportunity the in second half and we scored four goals. We can’t ask for more, except for Percy (Tau). We were speaking today at lunch and some were asking ‘Percy, when are you going to be player of the month?’ and I said don’t focus on player of the month, focus on player of the year. Those other things don’t matter. If you win the championship, you will be up for player of the year. We are working towards that. Leave player of the month and coach of the month,” added the Sundowns coach.

“I told him Percy (Tau) to focus on scoring goals. You’ve got the speed because he does so many things around the game. If Percy scores 50 percent of the goals that he creates for himself then he will have 20/30 goals, easily. If he checks the conversion rate, it is not good enough.”

Mosimane, likewise, was full of compliments for midfielder Tiyani Mabunda who scored Sundowns’ second goal on the day and was superb in the middle of the park with his passing ability.

“He Mabunda is unbelievable. He cuts so many balls in the midfield. He steals so many balls and he plays them forward. He stole one or two and played them forward today. His passing is unbelievable. I can see in the goal that he scored, he made another steal in the midfield. He has a way of doing this, people think that he is alone and then he steals it,” said the Sundowns mentor.

Mosimane did not leave the fans out either and was full of praise for the Sundowns faithful.

“It is beautiful and encouraging to see the fans here and happy. I’m always edging them that they need to fill the stadium. I always tell the boys, we don’t just call people to come to the stadium, we need to improve the product. If the product is good, then you can sell the product. As long as we don’t fill a stadium, it means we are not good enough. We need to improve the product and make sure that we play proper football that people will like,” concluded Mosimane.

Not a massive fan of Pitso, but he is a good coach with a very sharp brain and is spot-on with his comments. Percy needs to work even harder to convert better, which will make a dream overseas move happen.

That's a brilliant advice a father could give to his son. I am proud of the relationship between Mosimane & his boys. He treats them equal advice them to do more. He should now focus on Lebese, Manyisa & Vilakazi. Those guys should step up their toes. Teko was brilliant with his position. They should two proof themselves they're worthy to wear the down's jersey!
