Pitso warns PSL teams: Stay in your lane

CAF Champions League

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has warned Kaizer Chiefs and other PSL teams to stay in the right lane if they hope to win the league championship this season.

Amakhosi are currently sitting on top of the league with 31 points from 12 games, defending champions Sundowns second behind the Phefeni Boys with 21 points from from 11 games.

Despite the huge gap in terms of points, Mosimane has reminded again that the league championship will be determined in May next year, not now.

"When you are a well-rested team you can't compete with other teams, know your space, know where you are and play in that lane, that's all," said Mosimane.

"Come to the fast lane, then we can talk about the fast lane. Don't talk from the slow lane, left lane, and take the right lane.

"When people are coming from behind and moving away, that's the lane, and then we can talk about driving fast."

Sundowns will switch their focus to the CAF Champions League when they host Petro de Luanda in Pretoria on Saturday (21h00).

"I always say we have to run the same Comrades Marathon, then you can tell me about the Comrades Marathon," Mosimane added, referring to the number of competitions his team is involved in.

"As long as you don't run this Comrades Marathon, you won't understand it."

Meanwhile, Sundowns have also been dealt injury setbacks ahead of the match after Mosa Lebusa and Jose Ali Meza picked up groin injuries in training on Friday.
