Pitso: I Need To Be Educated

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane suggested that he needs to be educated on the rules of football after he took issue with the assistant referee during the Tshwane derby.

Sundowns moved to within three points of Orlando Pirates after defeating SuperSport at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Mosimane complained about the time added on after 90 minutes the referees’ insistence that his players run off the field when being substituted.

“What I'm not happy about is that the referee says four minutes of added time, and the guy outside (the fourth official) puts five minutes,” added Mosimane.

“I spoke to the ref and asked him how many minutes did he say, he says four. I asked the guy why he puts five, he said because when you substitute your players they don't run.

“I said I want you to show me on Champions League, on EPL, on La Liga, when they run, it is a norm in South Africa that when you make a substitute they say that players must run.

“Why must they do that? You book them if they delay. He is coming out, so I don't know, someone must educate me, I need to know this law that when you substitute the players must run.

“I'm happy to be wrong but I need to be educated.”

Moving back to the actual football, Mosimane did commend his side for the win.

“What I like is that we always find the goals in the derby and we try to play well, we try to defend with the ball because if you kick it forward all the time then they have more legs, they are stronger,” continued Mosimane.

“We only came here the day before, in the evening, so you just try and play and deliver the ball. SuperSport are a good team, you can see that they responded very well. (Aubrey) Madiba is an unbelievable player.

“We are happy we won, we played well. Sometimes Sundowns players when it looks like it is easy then they are showing off. They should have scored two more in the first half.”
