Pitso Mosimane: There's Only Two Teams, It's Us And Orlando Pirates, We Play

By Soccer Laduma - May 18, 2017 09:16 AM

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach, Pitso Mosimane, congratulated Bidvest Wits on their triumph and claims they deserved to win the title.

Sundowns came back from two goals down to secure a 2-2 draw with Maritzburg United, but it wasn't enough to keep their title hopes alive with one game to spare.

However, Mosimane felt his charges never really had a firm grip on the top spot this season.

“It wasn’t meant for us. We have to accept it and you’ve got to congratulate Wits. They’ve done very well, they deserve the trophy," Mosimane told SuperSport.

“You know, we’ve got seven titles, so it’s about football, it’s like that. That’s how Barca or Real Madrid will feel in the last match as well, one of them will be feeling like us after the last match. But it’s OK.

“The second goal was very important for us, to keep us alive for (the) second position for Champions League, so it’s OK, you’ve got to accept it.

“They deserve it, Wits deserve it. They fought. It was never for us, we never really held on to it for more than three days it's OK. What makes me most happy is (the supporters)- they were singing the whole way. Unbelievable. They understand you can’t win everything.”

The Sundowns tactician also explained why he would never want his side to sit back and defend in a match.

"It's easy to play on the break. If Sundowns play like this, who is going to pass through our defence, we have to play," he added.

"There's only two teams, it's us and Orlando Pirates, we play. When you go to a training session as a coach, you train how to attack and how to move the ball from the back.

"The easiest training session to do, is everybody behind the ball, wait for a chance and then you go out on a break like (Evans) Rusike. That's normal, that's easy.

"When you are playing a team at the same level or the same position on your log, how many game did you win with that system?

"It's OK, you see Barca, they keep playing, Bayern they have to play. I can't have a training session and say sit there and let the opponent start the ball and then wait and go on a break, it's very difficult.

"Dan Malesela does it well. He plays from the back also. It's very easy to do that and it's easy to win. You call it percentage football."

Rats deserve this uncalled for insults by this stupid Masendewana coach. That should teach them to stop kissing dunudunu ass simply because they hate Chiefs.

Pitso you think you smarter than Pirates and their supporters, come on; we all know that deep down in your heart you don't mean it, how many times did pirates won against you? You talk about them because you always win when playing against them. You can't talk about other teams because they beat you.

Pitso must just Congratulate other Teams for their Achievement and keep quite... He is one of the Best Coaches we have around but his Mouth diarrhea is costing him respect we have for him... He cannot justify the position Pirates find itself in with the so called "good soccer" they are playing! Let him go and ask The Toothless one for a job and see how he will do without Motsepe's billions to buy players he wants because at Pirates Khoza buys what he wants not what the Coach needs hence their fight for survival... Next season this Pirates team will survive at Playoffs nxa!

That's why your team couldn't defend the league and that's why pirates are number 11 and can't even manage to get to 35pts it's because they play neh?
