Pitso: Khune Can Rest, Brockie Might Not Start
Pitso Mosimane Has Taken Aim At Kaizer Chiefs Ahead Of This Weekend's Clash
The build-up to this weekend’s showdown between Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns is currently in full swing, with Head Coach Pitso Mosimane already taking aim at the opposition.
In a joint press conference hosted by Amakhosi ahead of the match this weekend, Head Coach Mosimane revealed that he still has memories of Sundowns’ recent defeat to Chiefs at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium.
"I still have the memories (last match at Loftus), it is part of football. You can choose which memories you want to remember,” Mosimane was quoted saying on Chiefs' official Twitter account.
The Brazilians’ head coach then went on to discuss reuniting with Leonardo Castro, saying that the Colombian is aware of all the Sundowns’ side ins and outs.
"Leo (Castro) has moved on. We are generous, Steve (Komphela) is happy. Leo left on a good note. Kaizer Chiefs gave us Lebese.
"Leo knows all our secrets, he travels with a booklet. He probably gave it to Steve,” he added as quoted from Chiefs’ Twitter account.
Mosimane then went on to take aim at Chiefs’ goalkeeper, Itumeleng Khune, saying that Sundowns’ new signing, Jeremy Brockie may not cause the shot-stopper much trouble as he is doubtful to start.
"Itu you can rest, Brockie may not start. We did not bring him to put us on top. He found us there. We brought him for the Champions League. Brockie can help us on the continent,” Mosimane added.
The two sides will lock horns at the FNB Stadium on Saturday, January 27, in a promising Absa Premiership encounter.
