Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says he’d rather leave the job of calculating how many points will win the Absa Premiership title to Gavin Hunt and Steve Komphela.
The 2017/18 campaign could turn out to be one of the lowest-scoring seasons in PSL history, with so many clubs dropping points. After 20 matches, Sundowns are top of the table on 38 points, meaning they have dropped 22 points throughout the campaign.
Mosimane says they are five points off the target they had set themselves after 20 matches, so he is hoping to collect maximum points tonight against Free State Stars and versus SuperSport United on Saturday.
“You know I am not too good with figures and statistics. People who talk about figures are Gavin Hunt and Steve Komphela. Those are guys who would easily tell you how many [points are required to win the title] and most of the time they are right.
“I don’t know figures, I just want to stay where we are and then I will answer you later, whether we are there [at the set target] or not.”
Mosimane adds: “At the moment we are five points behind our schedule, so hopefully we will get three points according to what we think is right for us. Even if we get what is right for us, we don’t know if it will be enough to win the league.”
