Pitso Happy With Scrappy Win

By Soccer Laduma - Dec 10, 2017 06:40 PM

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimne was pleased to see his side collect three points in a 'scrappy game'.

Bangaly Soumahoro's first-half volley was enough to hand the Brazilians a 1-0 win over Golden Arrows at the Princess Magogo Stadium.

"I think we did ourselves a big favour by taking the only chance we had at the time, as early as that time. But we've been having good early starts to be honest," Pitso told SuperSport after the match.

"It was difficult conditions for both sides, but I know it doesn't look like it from the outside - the wind. It didn't work in our favour in the first half and it did work in our favour in the second half, it helped us because the ball hangs in the air, we can push our back-four almost at the centre because the ball can't go there.

"They had their chances in the beginning to use the wind [to their favour] but I think we defended well to be honest. It was a scrappy affair, you can't have the Baroka performance today on conditions like that. You have to take what's there.

"Our final pass was not good but we were hanging in there. I didn't want to make the substitutions [early] because I thought Vila [Sibusiso Vilakazi] was going to score. Percy [Tau] was a little bit emotional today, it's not his game but he worked hard.

"You have to take it the way it is. We played a difficult team that is good on the break. Sometimes you need to have the facets to play in all the conditions. We were professional and did what we had to do."

Keep those yellow points coming boys, lets make sure we maintain that top spot. Manyisa hasn't offered us anything guys up to far, im worried about his performance.

I think the formations applied by coaches kill our beautiful game. The coaches often use defensive formation not to concede but they cannot score as well. How do you apply 3-5-1 formation and yet you don't have players who can do that.?

@mondentete that's exactly my point with Manyisa in the pitch Downs will be under pressure we cant be a bad team over night after displaying a good football against Baroka now its a time to give Lebese enough chance like Manyisa.

Ja when we have Manyisa on the pitch there's confusion in the team we minus 1 player, just 1 change affects the team performance, he is a curse
