A Cup Is A Different Emotion – Mosimane 

Mamelodi Sundowns host an in-form team in Bloemfontein Celtic at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday night, and coach Pitso Mosimane has given his thoughts ahead of that MTN8 quarterfinal fixture.

“A cup is always a different game. It always gives you its own emotion and the game has its own tempo also,” he said, adding that he was wary of Celtic’s latest run.

The Free State-based outfit were sharp in front of goal last weekend as they beat Golden Arrows 5-0 in an Absa Premiership clash.

“We are playing a team that is at the moment much more fit than we are. They obviously had a very good programme that was very good, unlike ours of four weeks. They are maybe on week eight or nine, these guys. They are more ready, with speed, game speed and all that. We are playing a team that has scored six goals in two games and conceded three. I wish I could have those stats,” Mosimane said.

But Downs are eager to progress as the games are coming in thick and fast.

“It will be difficult for us. They are motivated and they are on a high. So we have to do what we have to do and use our experience to play against them. And in the cup I don’t think anybody cares how you play. The cup is about who goes to the semifinal. You can lift this cup after four games,” the coach explained.

    I pray for young players to be given a chance lose or win they will gain an experience out of it. Pitso we you, you have a tendency of favouritism and bus packing instead of playing football. This year if you win something lucky for you but I really don’t think so, with this mindset of defending, you are going nowhere. Give young players a chance stop buying there is so much talent in the MDC, you give at least 3 young players in your starting lineup and don’t you dare tell us about experience. I believe this season is your last season cos you won’t win anything, people will start seeing you for what you are…

      Lol this is the craziest comment I’ve ever seen. Makgalwa and Mkhulise are in the mix. For your info, Experience is vital in football. Even Barca is failing to rely on LA Marcia like before. Madisha is there too. And from what you’re saying it’s like losing isn’t a problem for as long as we play youngsters. I mean where’s Ajax Cape Town today?

  4. Sthembiso Khumalo
