SLTV TBT: Remember What Pitso Said About This Chiefs Player?
In this week’s throwback Thursday, Soccer Laduma takes a look at what Pitso Mosimane said after Khama Billiat was crowned man of the match.
Mamelodi Sundowns played to a 1-1 draw against Kaizer Chiefs in their first Absa Premiership encounter of the 2018/19 season, with Billiat walking away with the Man of the Match award at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium in August last year.
However, after the game, Mosimane wasn’t too pleased that Billiat was crowned Man of the Match, revealing that he personally thinks that a MOTM award should go to someone who gave the opposition trouble.
“I thought it is voting again, you know Chiefs have so many supporters and when you say vote, they will outvote everybody,” Mosimane said after the game in August.
“I thought it is this SMS again, as the Shell Helix Cup. But it’s okay, I respect… Who chooses the man of the match? Do you know? That somebody, don’t you want to ask him a question and say, how did you choose? And let’s know the ghost, I mean which angle does he come from? TV commentators?
“Man of the Match, it means we had trouble with that person, but I never saw any trouble, sorry, my opinion and I am happy to be wrong,” Mosimane said.
