The Sundowns coach was magnanimous in defeat and admitted their opponents deserved the victory.

“They were the better team. I’m happy for the team, I’m happy for Gavin Hunt, I can see his broad smile, God loves us all, he won his first trophy, he deserves a trophy, he’s been fighting and fighting,” Mosimane said on SuperSport after the match.

“We can’t win them all, we need to focus on the one in Cairo and well done to Wits. My boys played well, it’s okay we showed character. That’s part of football, we’ll play top eight again next year.

“They [Wits] played well, they deserve it. The game was good, they deserve it and I’m happy for Gavin, he deserves to win, that’s why I said last week I’m happy for Steve [Komphela at Kaizer Chiefs] also to win, God loves us all, it’s part of the game.

“We’ve got bigger things to achieve in Cairo, you could see that we didn’t have the legs … but we accept it, well done to Wits and Brian Joffe, he’s invested a lot of money, at least he sees a trophy now, very good, it’s good for football.

“Let’s all win, it’s good. We have to share these things.”
