Pitso: Referee Mistakes Can Cost You The League

By Soccer Laduma - Feb 24, 2018 09:55 PM

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane had a lot to say about the refereeing following their 1-1 draw with SuperSport United.

Percy Tau cancelled out Thabo Mnyamane's first-half strike as Sundowns and SuperSport shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw on Saturday evening.

Mosimane took issue with SuperSport's opening goal, which he felt was offside.

“It’s a difficult stage. It’s difficult for the referees they are humans, unfortunately the mistakes that are happening can cost you the league. It’s been tough, I come from the stands I need to try and show leadership,” Mosimane told SuperSport after the match.

“It’s very difficult to show leadership, you heard what Gavin Hunt said. You hear what Benni McCarthy is saying and Benni will always be called to disciplinary hearings because that guy in the DC in the PSL offices is waiting to collect the money from the coaches.

“I don’t have problems with referees but for a young referee he handled it well. He needs to be given a chance. I’m not sure about the goal of SuperSport United because I was close to the line. What I know is that he Ilinesman) was late. It’s probably not offside but I can guarantee you he was late, not once, not twice, not three times he was forever late. I had to stay on the line [to remind him].

“He allowed other things, Clayton [Daniels] was swearing at our bench, calling the call the Benni said. He heard it and kept quiet. I asked him did you hear what he was saying its not like I wanted him to send Clayton off, I wanted him to have the guts. But he’s also young they need these kind of games to learn and experience that’s how you learn.

Mosimane also commented on the magnitude of the of the Tshwane derby compared to the Absa Premiership's other derbies.

“What a game of football. It’s a Tshwane derby. It’s the biggest derby in terms of the game. It might not be the biggest in terms of numbers but it’s a Tshwane derby," he added.

“What an unbelievable player Percy Tau is. Unbelievable player. Percy shows that talent alone is not enough. You need to put hard work sweat non-stop. I love my team. It’s a very good team.

“If my teams plays like this I don’t care if we win the league or not. I care about the quality of football, the energy we put it’s unbelievable.”

Those stupid people out there are treating you like a king. In fact they are afraid of punishing you.

Yet another day the referees has a helping hand in Mamelodi Sundowns's one point. Midweek they denied Stars a clear penalty in the last minutes and today an obvious scoring opportunity for Rusike who stated his run exactly on top of the centre line. How come on earth can that be an offside? Either SAFA or PSL must wake-up and take action against these referees they ruin our beautiful football. Now I see Benni was right about these referees

Manyisa doesn't even deserve to be at Sundowns, how Pitso justify buying I can't tell, for seasons he's been off-form, worried about promising boys like Mohomi

Our coach is the best in the country. He knows how to spot a talented player. Sirino is a marvel to watch.

Since we're playing with two no 10s, we must sacrifice Manyisa and put in a natural striker, maybe Sekotlong or Brockie.

The league is going to Pretoria. Don't worry about the refrees. We all know who pay them.
