Tinkler: You can't ask me that

Telkom Knockout

Maritzburg United head coach Eric Tinkler decided against sharing his view on Judas Moseamedi's disallowed goal in the Telkom Knockout final against Mamelodi Sundowns.

Moseamedi gave the Team of Choice the lead late in the first-half, but Mauricio Affonso netted twice in the second stanza to give Sundowns a 2-1 victory.

The former Cape Town City strike thought he had restored parity after netting deep in stoppage time but his goal was ruled out for offside, although Tinkler was refused to comment on the incident when pressed for a comment by SuperSport.

"No comment, you shouldn't be asking me this question really. So ja, move on to the next one please. I should never be doing interviews ten minutes after the game," he retorted.

"You know emotions are high, that's a question you shouldn't be asking me."

The former Cape Town City mentor was asked if he's angry with the decision to disallow the goal and he restrained himself from giving away his exact thoughts.

"You shouldn't be asking me that question, move on," was all he could say on the matter and was only comfortable talking about the positives he takes away from the game.

"The positives are our first-half performance, we should have punished them, we had great opportunities right in the first minute we should have scored. We had another two, three chances and against a team of Sundowns' quality, you gonna get punished if you don't take your opportunities," he finally opened up.

"We spoke about that at half-time and unfortunately that's what ended up happening, again like I said, Congratulations to Sundowns."
