Mosimane Bemoans Sundowns' Missed Chances

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane bemoaned his side's missed chances during their 0-0 draw with Chippa United.

The Brazilians could only secure a point against the Chilli Boys at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

"It was a very good game of football, we tried our best but our best was not good enough to be honest. But we got numerous chances and open ones. It's just the technique hey. Percy had so many chances but it's a good game, entertaining game on a Saturday," Mosimane told SuperSport after the game.

"We controlled the midfield in the second half and that's why [Hlompho] Kekana didn't have the legs in the end and we brought in Mshishi [Themba Zwane].

"We brought in Anthony [Laffor] and [Yannick] Zakri but unfortunately we could not get much. We dominated but domination doesn't mean anything if you don't put the ball in the net. But I rather take that than we play 0-0 and we don't "play", the integrity of the club is important. We played but it doesn't mean we'll score all the time. They're a good team, they're stubborn."

Mosimane also explained why he deploys Percy Tau in the so called "false number nine" role.

"You have to move. You can't play for Sundowns and stay in one position, you have to move and travel around the pitch and he's good at that. If you can't score you must try something you can't just go the same way," he added.

"I wonder who's going to come here and claim the points. I'm happy about the game but not the results. It's good football. A point in not bad."
