Abafana Bes’thende take on Bafana ba Style in the Nedbank Cup at Loftus Stadium at 8pm this evening.
Mngqithi says Mosimane has changed his coaching style from his time at SuperSport United.
“I would be happy to finish the game within the 90 minutes but knowing Sundowns and Pitso, it’s not going to be an easy game because they can change their approach,” Mngqithi tells the PSL’s official website.
“The Pitso that I know from the past at SuperSport is not the same Pitso that I see at Sundowns now.
“The one at SuperSport was defensive and it was difficult to crack him, but the one at Sundowns is a bit arrogant in terms of play; he believes that they should attack opponents more. I would be happy with the new Pitso because this one will give us an open game,” Mngqithi says.
Meanwhile, Mosimane says Sundowns are going to go all out in the Cup, seeing as it is the last trophy they have within their reach.
“We need to maintain total focus in the Nedbank Cup because this is the last cup left to compete for this season and we want a piece of it. We have a chance of winning it, just like any of the teams still contesting for it in the last 16,” Mosimane tells Sundowns official site.
“We know we have to respect our opponent on Friday night because they are a good team, who play the ball just like we do and they also work hard. We saw what they can do in counter-attack situations when we played against them in the league. We will be more focused this time and we are ready for them.”
