Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane praised Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy for his brand of football, following their MTN8 semi-final tie.
Sundowns will have it all to do in the second leg after they suffered a 1-0 loss to the Citizens at the Cape Town Stadium.
“What a good game of football hey. That’s how football should be played. When you’re sitting at home you must see the passing game,” the Brazilians boss told SuperSport TV.
“I think we should give credit to Benni [McCarthy] he has done well. Good brand of football, not to win at all costs. It’s beautiful. It’s good for our country to see young coaches coming up and play like this,” he said.
The former Bafana Bafana coach also added that Lebusa is still learning afer his error gifted City their goal.
“But I’m not unhappy with my team. I think they came here to play. I’m okay with that. There’s only one big mistake we did hey. You can never ever leave [Taariq] Fielies free on a corner kick hey. But Mosa Lebusa is paying school fees. Welcome to the high level hey because one mistake.... Without that ball there’s no issues. We created chances,” he continued.
“We hit the post here and there but I’m happy to see the Anthony [Laffor] goal hey. That’s an interesting one but Phillip Tinyani did well as the referee. He managed the game well,” Mosimane concluded.
