It was a game full of drama that matched up to the pre-game hype, and Kaizer Chiefs’ Ernst Middendorp will be a happy man after ending Pitso Mosimane’s dominance…
Take a look at some dramatic shots from the game in the gallery above!
Not only did the Glamour Boys manage to make it four consecutive Absa Premiership wins for the first time since 2017, but they also extended their lead at the top of the table to five points thanks to Samir Nurkovic’s brace at Loftus Versfeld on Sunday afternoon.
Middendorp spoke highly of Mosimane after the game while also praising his troops for their efforts in the 2-0 win, and will be relieved after he picked up his first win over his Masandawana counterpart since the German's Chiefs side beat Mosimane's SuperSport United back in 2006.
There were calls for offside for Nurkovic’s opener, and while there were no complaints over his second goal, the game was full of appeals for penalties, fouls and handballs in what was a fiercely fought affair between the league’s current top two.
While Mosimane is adamant that victory wasn’t necessary for the Brazilians in their attempts to win the league in 2019/20, but his reaction after the game regarding the Serbian’s ‘offside’ goal, suggests that he was not happy with the outcome.
Do you think Chiefs deserved their win today?
