Pitso pleased with Sundowns' performance

Mamelodi Sundowns

Sundowns surrendered a 1-0 halftime lead to allow Kermit Erasmus and Chris David to snatch all the points for City who continue their knack of turning matches on its head in the second half.

“It was a tough game, but I’m happy with my team. But we lost the game,” Mosimane told SuperSport TV after the game.

“We lost in an unfortunate situation in the first goal, the ball deflected off my player and it falls off to Kermit Erasmus in front of the goal and he is lethal there. So that’s the unfortunate part of it.

“The second goal we should have been smart about it to shift towards the side of the ball and not play a foul over there, and it was a brilliant goal, unbelievable. They are scoring good free-kicks so what are you going to do?”

Masandawana slipped two places from first to third with there now being serious questions marks over their title credentials while Mosimane refuted fatigue notions.

“We are not tired,” added the Sundowns coach.

“We have shown we can play. I’m happy also that ‘Mshishi’ also showed that he can play three games in seven days, that’s doable.

 “So, its ok we are not tired. We have to win in the Champions League on Saturday; it’s a big game for us, we need to qualify. When we come back, we still going to fight for the league again.

“We have been in this situation before in the last five years, Sundowns always does the same thing. We not new comers to this title chase.

“We’ve been there, we know it. It’s not easy, it’s difficult. We don’t collect enough points to be honest but its ok.”
