We have been fighting and scoring – Pitso Mosimane

Three vital points were collected by Mamelodi Sundowns in a clash against Golden Arrows. This was game number twenty-six as the climax is slowly reaching its peak. This was Masandawana’s first league win since football resumed and it came at a crucial time. It took a 90th-minute winner by Themba Zwane.

“It was a very emotional game for us, very difficult because we were patient, the last ten minutes was the Mamelodi Sundowns we know, I hope my team is back. Good mentality from the substitute. I told Zwane he must be patient because we love him and something will happen,” said coach Pitso Mosimane in the post-match interview.

Coach Pitso Mosimane also touched on the fact that the Brazilians have been scoring “since we have been in the bubble we have scored nine, how can you score nine and not get a chance to win one match. It’s about time, it’s not luck we fought for it, we’ve been fighting. It’s just that we haven’t kept zero at the back but the goals have been there. It’s good for us, good for the confidence we move on. For us it’s more about the break, we have been fighting and scoring, we don’t give up. When you fight and get nothing you stress and there is pressure, and we have been getting that. So we celebrate the win because we have been under a lot of pressure. It is about time we celebrate.”

The next match for Masandawana is a match that is on everyone’s lips, a clash against log leaders Kaizer Chiefs. The point difference is three points and a win for Masandawana will level the top two sides on the same points, they would only be separated by goal difference. Coach Pitso said, “Thursday is not a title decider, the way I know this thing, sometimes the title is decided on the last day. Mathematically the title will not be won on Thursday but we would love to win on Thursday. The fat lady hasn’t sung and we are still going.”

      To masandawan players please guys we support you, we love you don’t be scared because you will commit more mistakes if you are nervous, to all SUNDOWNS FC FORWARDS AND MIDFIELDERS please guys creativity is key and decision making will be crucial in tomorrow’s game and afterwards to the DEFENDERS please guys it is safe outside the pitch, safety first you are the professionals, don’t be fancy. Don’t ball watch KAIZER CHIEFS FC is dangerous with set pieces, please guys go out there and make us proud. Please guys selfishness, greedyness, poor decision making in front of goals will lead us to lose the game. To my two centre midfielders please work over time and protect the back four, a goal scored by KUTUMELA shouldn’t have been scored. If it was not for ball watching by UNASCIMENTO the first goal shouldn’t have been conceded against MU.

      Pitso ask question why people dislike Rivaldo Coetzee simple answer he doesnot play accordingly expectation lazy too slow get beaten today do or die with Chiefs easy beat Chiefs just pressurize not give space not deffend deep attacked not that thousand passes straight forward attack

    This is a game where each team will want to get a goal in the first 10 – 15 minutes. Player concentration should be the first tactical factor, then pace. I’ll wonder if Madisha will want to play those back-balls to his goal-keeper Onyango/ Mweene knowing well that Nascimento is nowhere to cover for him. As for the team selection, our hopes are with the coach Pitso. Personally I was thrilled lately to see every player given a chance, except Seabi,Mohomi and Laffor. Just we shouldn’t be afraid of them(Chiefs), the only way to do is to play by coaching staff’s instructions. But please,avoid seating at the back and forced to play around our own box.

    Play pacey players , I like
    The combination of Meza
    & Mahlambi up front
    Their defence is slow

    Good luck Sundowns against Chiefs. I would like to see Laffor in the starting lineup, this is the type of games where he brings the best of him.


    Pitso proved how useless heis,he replaced useful Zwane instead of useless Kekana,Mahlambi played very well,Maboe play ahead of him.Our bench is killing us.
