Pitso content with performance

Head Coach Pitso Mosimane praised his sides’ ability to break down a tough Polokwane City defence to earn a 1-0 win at home. Mosimane felt the Brazilians could have been more clinical in front of goal but praised substitute Sibusiso Vilakazi for his 86th-minute goal:

“They were organised and tough to break down.”

“I don’t know how many times we can miss, everyone missed, but finally we got a goal, Vila gave us a goal, a good super sub.”

The Brazilians will close out 2019 with a trip to Algeria to face USM Algers in the CAF Champions League. Mosimane says his team knows what to expect as they prepare for the trip:

“We are leaving on Monday, landing on Tuesday, we’ll train on Christmas day.”

“USM is a tough team, the grandstands will be full. We have the mentality to play that game, we know how to play against the North Africans, we can deal with that.”

“I believe we can win, they are dangerous upfront but I think we can find a way through.”

Downs take on USM Algers at the Omar Hamadi Stadium on Saturday 28 December. Kick-off is at 16:00.

    I just hope we’re not going to buy Judas Moseamedi in January. We have this tendency of buying one hit wonders and when they don’t suit our style of play we discard them. Just because he’s troubling Zebras ? doesn’t mean he’ll be our solution to overcome them. We very nearly threw away two points against a dead snake ? on Saturday. Polokwane City was just there for the taking and how we failed to score until the 86th minute baffles me.

      I agree with your comment that we should not buy Judas. What we need now is to beat Chiefs 2 times in a row without their nemesis Judas. Only then will they respect us

    Langerman must learn to trap the soccerbal please so that he be called in the national team.you cn’t fail the basics for so many years.Hlompho stop panicking when under pressure or learn from Professor T Zwane.

      member some people are lucky Langerman doesn deserve to proffesioner soccer player play for big team as Sundown cannot trap ball he fail controll ball fail direct ball he just kick ball even some front of him he blast him buy fun skill player such as Mohomi alway on stand

      1. Members let us not be negative, Tebogo is not a striker but he crosses the balls very well, sometimes he makes mistakes where he wants to trap and run with the ball at the same time. BUT he is the best left back in the country, Eintlik why are we complaining when we are winning? you cannot compare Mohomi with Tebogo, that is two different players playing far different positions. today try to smile and watch the game we are not playing your teams.

    No its not because its Sundowns my brother. Its a CAF problem, no CAF game is being televised until they resolve their issues with the sponsor.
