Pitso Hints At Why His Team Will Win The League
Pitso Mosimane Thinks That Mamelodi Sundowns Has Enough Experience To Endure Their Heavy Schedule
Mamelodi Sundowns head coach, Pitso Mosimane maintains that his side has the experience to endure the pressure from their upcoming fixtures.
Sundowns will get their busy April schedule underway this weekend when they travel away to the Mother City to face Cape Town City in the quarter-finals of the domestic cup.
Speaking to the media, Mosimane explained his squad rotation in Sundowns’ past fixtures, saying that he dropped certain players for important times like these.
“You’ll always have your key players. Last time we had the CBDs, now it’s changed. Now it’s Percy coming up, Vila, Gaston (Sirino) is coming slowly up, Themba Zwane is there,” Mosimane told the media.
“You were surprised why I dropped Kekana, I dropped Themba Zwane at crucial times when we really wanted the points, I said they must rest. There will be a time where we are going to need them and this is the time where we need them.
“We gave him (Tau) 15 days rest after the game in Rwanda. We got him back (and) we got him fresh. We dropped Mabunda, we have the big guys back, they have experience, they can take the pressure,” he added.
The head coach then went on to say that the Brazilians are well aware that they cannot afford to lose a single game.
“This is a crucial time and we have the experience and we know that (we have the experience) of knowing that if we lose, we might lose the cup, we might lose the league, we might lose the champions league. Because we’ve got experience, if you want to race with us you must also have experience, we can’t drop a point, it can be costly,” Mosimane concluded.
