Mosimane: Bitter taste for what?

Telkom Knockout

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane won't lose any sleep because of the talks surrounding how they won the Telkom Knockout final.

Judas Moseamedi thought he had scored an equaliser for the Team of Choice in second-half stoppage time but it was ruled offside as Sundowns went on to claim a 2-1 victory on Saturday night.

Mosimane questioned whether the goal was really offside or not, while he also made it clear that he doesn't have any issue of the talks of them being label as beneficiary of poor officiating.

"Bitter taste? Why? Have you asked the question to others that have benefited? Don't worry about me, I'm happy, I don't care," said Mosimane.

"Was it offside? Was it not? Are you sure? Okay, if it is offside, you must apologise."

Mosimane admitted, however, that Maritzburg were the better side in the first half, but felt The Brazilians' experience ultimately came in handy to make sure they rally from behind to claim the trophy and pocket R4-million prize money.

"It was a very difficult game, I think Maritzburg United gave us a scare in the first few minutes of the game," he added.

"They were the only team that looked like scoring – Judas Moseamedi pitched up again and tried to fix the country again. But you know how football is – 90 minutes and we are the champions."
