Pitso: I Think City Might Win The League, But…

Pitso Mosimane has discussed what the effect of a midweek loss has to their title challenge, although stating that they have a more important encounter on the weekend.

Mamelodi Sundowns suffered their second defeat of the Absa Premiership, at the hands of Cape Town City last night, with the Citizens clinching a 2-1 win in a thrilling encounter.

However, despite the race for the Absa Premiership league title heating up, Sundowns will have to turn all their attention to this weekend’s CAF Champions League encounter against Lobi Stars at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium. 

“It’s bigger than this one,” Mosimane said. 

Speaking to the media, Mosimane discussed their Champions League run, while admitting that he was not too worried about last night’s Absa Premiership result and what it did to their title challenge. 

“We still have eight games; we are (getting) there, no one is going to win eight games in a row. I think Cape Town City might win the league also, why not? They put themselves in the pool so I wish them all the luck to win the league,” Mosimane told the media.

“But, we have a bigger game hey, a national agenda that one, it puts a star on top of the badge hey,” he added, as Sundowns look to secure a win over Lobi Stars this weekend to make their trip to Morocco stress-free. 

“No, they are experienced,” Mosimane said when asked about having to pick up his side’s confidence after a midweek defeat.

“They know that they have to turn the volume on, on Saturday, different game, Nigeria is going to sit in like the way Bloemfontein parked the bus. 

“It’s a big one, if you win this one you don’t have to win in Wydad to go through, it’s a big one,” he added.
