CAF Champions League

READ: Pitso wary of group rivals

Sundowns, the kings of Africa, will open their Group C campaign against Ethiopian visitors St George on May 13, with matches to follow against Esperance and AS Vita.

"CAF has taken over the time to play and dates to play," says Mosimane. "I like that when they do that but I want them to be consistent.

"The North Africans must also be told when to play because we are also told when to play. This thing is new now, now we are told when to play. Since when are we told? Why not send letters to say what time you're going to play and where you're going to play?

"So they told us where we're going to play and what time we're going to play. Somewhere, somehow it doesn't suit us because there is the period of Ramadan and they put all the Arab teams late at 9/10 o'clock. We are playing Esperance at 9, we're playing Esperance late here. Why? Because it's the period of Ramadan, they are fasting. But why do you determine what time we have to play here? So there we are. Maybe Ahmad must come out. He is [CAF] president now, it's not [Issa] Hayatou."
