Pitso: We Undermine Our League

Pitso Mosimane Has Hailed This Weekend's Clash To Be One Of The Biggest In Africa

By Soccer Laduma - Jan 29, 2018 07:06 PM

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach, Pitso Mosimane says that the FIFA delegation visited South Africa at the right time to see how the supporters came out in numbers to witness this weekend’s clash.

Sundowns locked horns with Kaizer Chiefs at the FNB Stadium on Saturday, January 27, where there were believed to be more than 70 000 supporters at the stadium. 

Speaking after the game, Mosimane described the encounter as one of the biggest in Africa despite playing to a goalless draw, saying that maybe only a match between Zamalek and Al Ahly could attract so many fans to a stadium.

“I think FIFA came at the right time, a big game, where can you find that in Africa, maybe unless Zamalek is playing Al Ahly, I don’t see it anywhere else. This is big, that’s why I say sometimes we underestimate our league or undermine our league. Our league is top,” he said.

Pitso when zebras play the mighty Double Treble Champs, 95 plus thousands fans fills the same stadium you used,to tell us we haven't seen it anywhere where the stadium is full like that is an insult to Mzanzi soccer, there is no bigger game in the whole of Africa than the Soweto Derby,Sundonkeys will never play in a full house FNB stadium, maybe when the charity cup is back and zebras and Rats had to participate then maybe Sundonkeys may play in front of 95 000, and lastly zebra and Sundonkeys game this past weekend was a total bore as both teams parked the bus, a game that finished with less than 4 shorts on target for both teams will never be entertaining to any soccer loving person, Mr Pitso get this in ur skull that Sundonkeys will never be a bigger team than zebras or Rats, you will forever be a small team

@setlaboswana I personally know some Downs fanatics who exhibit the very same intense emotions. Football is a game of immense passion. Think about El Clasico, Derby d'Italia, Manchester Derby and Argentina's Super Clasico. I am proud that our Soweto Derby is amongst the legendary African rivalries.

It was not the second biggest crowed after Al Ahly and Zamalek my coach. The boring Soweto derby fills up the FNB.

The game did really attract a lot of Supporters, I was impressed with Sundowns attendance. I was told by one of my friend( JMPD )officer who was patrolling at the stadium that there was a lot of people outside who didn't make it inside.

No Mr. Pitso, I don't agree with you to the extend, how is top when this stupid chiefs play the defensive style. Teams in Africa don't park the bus.

Bribing trophies is the only thing that's taking our league standard down,,,,chiefs ,pierats,supersport did tried to put the standard of psl high ,only to be dragged down by those small teams that use backdoor strategy
