Determined: Pitso Mosimane always knew Sundowns would beat Swallows


Pitso Mosimane talks up his Brazilian side, believing they have all the ingredients to outscore teams, but is wary of what the tricky Black Aces have up their sleeves

Having watched his side edge Moroka Swallows 2-1 in a Premiership encounter at Loftus on Sunday, Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane is confident of keep up the pace.

Sundowns failed in their last six attempts at beating Swallows, but a brace from Katlego Mashego ended that run and put Sundowns two points clear at the top of the table.

“It was a big game that we expected to win,” Mosimane commented after the game.

“We played proper from the beginning. To be honest, I never thought we would lose this match and we didn’t.

“We’ve been losing to Swallows all this time. It was about time that we beat Swallows.”

Mosimane’s team have been magnificent in front of goal so far this season, particularly at home, where they have netted no less than 11 goals in their last three home fixtures.

“I’m happy with the performances, with the goals and with the attitude,” Mosimane explained.

“I’m happy that Mashego scored twice.

“I think we had the attitude and the hunger… we showed that we wanted to win it and I’m happy we won it.”

They have scored the most goals in the league (23), while the next best, SuperSport United and Swallows, have bagged 17.

“We did what we had to do. We were dangerous up front. We have the speed up front and we have the energy to score goals.”

But Mosimane and his troops will have to put the victory aside and get straight into preparing for their next assignment, when they travel to Nelspruit to take on Mpumalanga Black Aces on Wednesday.

“It’s a very dangerous game for us,” Mosimane said.

“They have an experienced coach. That team is playing well.

“When Aces go forward, they are very dangerous. We must be very careful. I’ll be happy with one goal. If I get one goal I’ll take it, we can’t take anything for granted.”
