Mamelodi Sundowns

Pitso Fires Another Salvo At Chiefs

Pitso Mosimane has taken his mind games up a notch ahead of Sunday’s top of the table Absa Premiership clash between Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs, suggesting Ernst Middendorp – his Amakhosi counterpart – has not been as vocal about match officials because he is now “benefitting”.

The German mentor did often make comments which landed him in hot water while employed by other clubs in the domestic league and it is well documented that he quit his job at Maritzburg United three years ago because he felt he was being targeted.

Ahead of coming face to face with Middendorp this weekend, Mosimane fired yet another salvo at the Chiefs coach, having already insisted Sundowns do not need to beat Amakhosi to retain their league title this season. 

“Remember why Middendorp left South Africa? You must remind us,” he said to journalists after Downs beat Highlands Park last night to close the gap on log leaders Chiefs.

“He was at the DC (disciplinary committee) every day. He said the PSL was against him and he left. For what? Referees. He was complaining, but now he went to Thailand on honeymoon and he is back and he is benefitting. So why should we not talk about him? No, we will talk.” 

On Middendorp being at the Sundowns games recently to prepare for Sunday’s game, Mosimane bragged that he had a good record against the German.  

“He has watched me all my career and he knows what he got. We can look back at the history – the results are there. I repeat, we don’t have to beat Chiefs. They are well rested, feet up, watching us play. We have played 7 games more than Chiefs, they are fresh, dealing with injuries. That’s why I say they have a chance to win the league because they are well rested. We are going to play three games in six days. Here we go. We don’t run the same race – they don’t have CAF, didn’t have Top 8 so they train and wait, hence more energy. That’s normal,” said Mosimane, who told SuperSport on TV last night that he was also trying to hype up the game.
