Pitso Hails 'Unbelievable' Sundowns Star

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane reveals he was impressed by a number of players in the win over Free State Stars, especially 'unbelievable Gaston Sirino'. 

The Brazilians jumped up to the third spot on the Absa Premiership standings, following their 3-1 triumph over Ea Lla Koto on Wednesday evening.

Mosimane was pleased that Jeremy Brockie got his first goal for the club as well Aubrey Ngoma, who made his first in the Absa Premiership.  

“I think we had a good game. What helped us earlier is the goals. We have been struggling to get goals but we completed the goals. I think Jeremy Brockie was good for him to start to get confidence," Mosimane told SuperSport after the game. 

“Sometimes you call it and call it right. I think the goalkeeper denied him two goals on the goal-line. But he could’ve put more power on it but it wasn’t possible because of desperation to score more. 

“Unbelievable Gaston Sirino. What a goal he scored. He scored the same one against Chippa United. I think he scores amazing goals. But Aubrey played also well. He hasn’t played for long and lacked match fitness towards the end. We’re a team in construction." 

Mosimane also praised Lebohang Maboe, before claiming that his side is a work in progress.  

“Lebogang Maboe also played well. A very good player. Works hard, finer details. We are not yet there. We are in construction and everybody must be patient with us.

“We have lost important players. Free flowing players in the team. We should be patient. It will come right. Some teams take five years to get it right and haven’t won.

“I mean, if Liverpool can take years to win a trophy, we should be patient. It is not going to come now," he concluded.
