Pitso Responds To Silva & Lebese?

"It’s easy to go to newspapers and say I wasn’t playing because they didn’t give me a chance, who must we take out?,” Pitso Mosimane said after Mamelodi Sundowns' win over Black Leopards.

Former Sundowns attacker Toni Silva recently launched a scathing attack on Mosimane following his short-spell with the club.

George Lebese, who has joined SuperSport United on loan, also claimed he was 'depressed' at Sundowns after not getting regular game time.

Mosimane did not mention Silva or Lebese by name in his post-match interview, but both players have been outspoken about their time at Sundowns recently.

“They are working hard, it means they are living the right life. At Sundowns if you’re not living the right life, you can’t stay with us for long hey because we play every three days. It’s tough. We’ve got Emiliano Tade, what a good football player, but he has to wait for his chance," Mosimane told SuperSport after the game.

“It’s frustrating for the players I understand but the level is a bit different because you take Themba Zwane or Sirino out? Sirino gives 70 to 80 percent of our goals everytime. Those people are important for us.

“That’s why some other guys get frustrated and don’t get a chance to play, say things in newspapers but it’s part of my life. You have to break in the team and when you’re there you must stay in there. But you must score also.

“It’s handbags, it’s part of the game. Everybody says, “ah you’re frustrating players at Sundowns, who must I take out, Sirino, Themba Zwane? No it’s tough. It’s easy to go to newspapers [and say] I wasn’t playing because they didn’t give me a chance, who must we take out?”
