Pitso: Our Problem Was Conceding, Not Scoring

Pitso: Our Problem Was Conceding, Not Scoring

By Soccer Laduma - Jan 20, 2018 09:02 PM

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane was pleased to see his side register a clean sheet, which he felt was a problem in previous matches.

Sibusiso Vilakazi opened the scoring before Khama Billiat bagged a quickfire brace to inspire the Brazilians to a 3-0 win over Dikwena.

"We dealt with the first half very well because the second half was slightly different. They reacted in the second half they were pushing us. But we reacted well on the breaks although we didn't use our chances," Mosimane told SuperSport TV after the match.

"I'm happy that we kept zero behind [clean-sheet] because our problem has not been scoring goals. Our problem was to keep zero behind and we kept zero behind [clean-sheet]. We're scoring which is good. Khama was playing as a winger, he scored two goals which is good.

"You have to close Vuyo [Mere] down he's smart he's the one who's distributing the ball. So "Mshishi" [Themba Zwane] had to work very hard that's why he was quiet. I told him he had to sacrifice for the team and not be all over the place like he is always over the place and he did a good job on Vuyo."

Mosimane also refused to be drawn on the issue of Billiat's contract situation at the club.

When asked about Billiat, Mosimane replied, "On Khama Billiat: "Beautiful two goals. Beautiful free-kicks he's practicing them. That one [whether he's staying or going] is between him and his agent and the management of Mamelodi Sundowns.

"I'm no longer going to comment about it. As long as he focuses there's no problem. That's why we brought in Gaston [Sirino], Aubrey Ngoma and Jeremy Brockie in case of movements like this we should be able to cover the space."

When Pitso wins a game he doesn't make any noise about the referee and his assistants. When will you grow up and accept defeat? But congrats to Sundowns
