Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has admitted that seeing his former striking combination Leonardo Castro and Khama Billiat in Kaizer Chiefs colours and crucially scoring for the club has made him a little jealous.
Both players joined Kaizer Chiefs from Mamelodi Sundowns, Castro completed his transfer in January and he was joined by Billiat in July. The strikers have since their reunification proven once again what an effective scoring combination they are.
In the seven games which they have played as a combination, the pair has scored three times each and assisted the other on two other occasions. Mosimane admitted to being envious when he saw his former player score for Chiefs.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Mamelodi Sundowns have failed to score in their last four matches across all competitions, this lack of scoring ability has been blamed for the side crashing out of the CAF Champions League.
Kickoff.co.za reported that Mosimane said he was jealous in part because the combination of Billiat and Castro was something he had spent a lot of time developing and that combination was taken away from him by factors out of his control.
Mosimane expressed hope for the future and said he was currently working with a new combination at Mamelodi which he felt comfortable would eventually become powerful. He said that while it wasn’t always easy perfecting combinations he had faith that his team would come good given enough time and practice.
Mosimane said his side crashing out of the CAF tournament would give it the chance to focus on local competitions and would also galvanise the players to perform at their best.
