“Every coach would want to have safety of a good lead neh? But life is not about that. Sometimes it happens, especially in Spain with Barca and Juve [in Italy] and we used to find that in the Netherlands, where you know Ajax [Amsterdam] is going to run [away] with it. But I think it’s good for football, it’s good for media, it’s good for everybody,” Mosimane said.

“If I had a 15 point lead I would be comfortable because I will now see other players [in the team], I can do what I want.

You have to play fair and play right.”
