Mosimane: We tried

Mamelodi Sundowns

City handed Downs their first League loss of the season, after an own-goal by Tebogo Langerman in the first half.

Sundowns came into the match off a 7-1 win over AmaZulu, but could not break through the Polokwane defence.

“[Our first loss] had to come sometime, but it is football,” ‘Jingles’ says. “They attacked once and scored. It is sad, but it’s football.

“It was a nice parked bus; you can’t move the bus, but I understand Boebie [Solomons, new City coach] needs the points, and they needed them more than us; that’s why their central defender was man of the match.”

Mosimane says he appreciates that the Brazilians fans were behind his team all the way.

“We didn’t play well on the wings. Our wing play was not very good, but these things happen. Sundowns fans are singing and they understand that we tried.”
