Mosimane: I will not shut up

Premiership

Pitso Mosimane says he will never keep quiet and shy away from voicing his feelings about the performances of referees.

The Mamelodi Sundowns coach has been vocal about referees' decisions recently and claims one of the local teams have been benefiting more than the rest.

"They are under pressure. We are watching them. We are talking. We will complain. We will never keep quiet and say you are feeling jealous because they are winning. No, we say it the way it is," Mosimane said.

"Benni [McCarthy] says it. I say it. Okay, other coaches don't want to say it because they are modest, they don't feel like it. We want to win the championship. It's a championship game, we talk.

"[Jurgen] Klopp was complaining when Liverpool played against Manchester City. When Klopp complains it's okay. When I complain why do people say I am talking [too much]. No, I complain the same way."

Meanwhile, Mosimane insisted he has no personal issues with Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendoop.

The German coach has not received Mosimane's words well, saying Amakhosi are benefiting from referees' decisions.

"I don't have issues with Middendorp. He is doing exceptionally well. He has turned the team around. Look, how low can you go when you finish tenth and you are Kaizer Chiefs? You have to turn it around," he added.

"Should we say congratulations for turning [things] around? I mean they want to go where? Number 14? No, they can't finish 14 and how low can you go? You can only go up and he has done well. He did a very good job. He's got the team.

"They are difficult to beat, we accept that. But we will say they are benefiting."
