Mosimane loses Downs star for Pirates


Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane was left fuming after losing one his biggest players for their next league match against Orlando Pirates.

Midfielder Themba Zwane received his fourth booking of the season in the 0-0 draw with Bidvest Wits at Loftus Stadium on Tuesday, meaning he will miss the match against Pirates in Soweto on 15 January.

"I don't want to talk too much about Wayne Arendse's yellow card. It's debatable," said Mosimane.

"But that one of 'Mshishi', why? [Referee Abongile] Tom behaved differently. Why go to Mshishi and give him a yellow card?

"You can't even say it's dissent because the guy is too far from you to say he said something. I don't know what happened. It's a big one.

"I would like to know why he was given a yellow card but in South Africa you don't get answers. Maybe you can ask him, maybe he will tell you."
