Pitso Calls Truce With Middendorp?

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says his war of words in the media ahead of their game against Kaizer Chiefs on Sunday shouldn’t be taken personal by his Amakhosi counterpart, Ernst Middendorp.

Social media has gone into frenzy reacting to Mosimane’s comments that Downs don’t have to beat Chiefs to win the Absa Premiership and that Middendorp is no longer moaning about match officials because he is “benefitting”.

Mosimane has a few times now said he has been taken away by the hype – like everyone else, including both sets of fans and the neutrals.

“I don’t have an issue with Middendorp,” Mosimane said the record straight.

“I am calm and looking forward to the game – it is three points like any other match. He (Middendorp) is doing exceptional work and has turned the team around. He has said things about me also. So, I can’t hit back? But Chiefs is a big team, and finished outside the Top 8 last season. How long can you go? When you finished there? Should we say congratulations now that you are top of the table? They can only go up. He has got the team and they are difficult to beat. But we will say it: they are benefitting (from referees).”

The titanic battle between the two sides is set for Sunday afternoon at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium, and Downs will replace Chiefs as leaders if they win.
