Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane singled out a few of his players for praise, but says Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune is ‘the best’.
“It was a tough game, two strong teams. You could see the experience of Chiefs, at one stage they were catching us on the break but we knew that and we were prepared for that. But still, even if we knew that, they were always dangerous.”
With Sundowns unable to find the back of the net, Mosimane brought on Themba Zwane for Nyasha Mushekwi, Anthony Laffor for Teko Modise and Edward Manqele for Katlego Mphela in the second half.
“I think also Wayne Sandilands played well, Jabu Shongwe did well for us, Esrom [Nyandoro] was very good and Rama [Ramahlwe Mphahlele] came back very strong so we played well, even though we looked a little bit blunt up-front with two strikers, hence I made the changes,” he says.
“The midfield was okay, it was organised. Good game, a very tactical game. We did our best, we want our pride back and we played a big team so it was good.
“I think Itumeleng Khune also played well and that’s why he is number one in SA. He is unbelievable, he made two great saves – he is the best.”
