Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane unafraid to speak out against poor officiating

The Masandawana mentor has hit out at poor officiating in the past and is not planning to stop

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane will not keep silent when he feels aggrieved.

Sundowns most recently played out to a goalless draw against Bloemfontein Celtic in Tshwane, a game where Mosimane felt hard done by due to what he saw as being questionable refereeing decisions.

Nonetheless, the 54-year-old has never been one to hide his disdain and he is adamant that he will not stop anytime soon.

“I am happy to be wrong, but I will talk, there is nothing wrong with that,” Mosimane was quoted as saying by Phakaaathi .

“Football is my life and journey and I have invested a lot of emotions from my days as a youngster to where I am and today I must be polite and play nice guy?

“No, I say it the way it is. I spent all my hours working hard on this thing. Must I try and behave like a gentleman and not talk about it? No, I will talk about it,” Mosimane explained.

Meanwhile, the draw against Celtic would certainly concern Mosimane at it was the sixth time that Sundowns failed to score this season and the fifth time at home.

 “We need to believe, keep trying and make chances but we must convert them because when the times are like this, we must take opportunities. if we don’t take them it creates a little bit of pressure and stress,” Mosimane expressed.

“We create so many chances but we never take them. But this is the kind of stress when you go towards the finish line,” he concluded.

Mosimane will hope to see improvement when Sundowns next take on Cape Town City in the Mother City for the second time in the space of just over a week.

The reigning Premier Soccer League (PSL) champions are top of the table and will be keen on further extending their lead at the top.
