Mamelodi Sundowns coach, Pitso Mosimane, feels he may be an easy target following the recent questionable refereeing decisions and an assault charge.
Perhaps it’s a case of bad luck, perhaps a case of bad timing. However, Pitso Mosimane feels the recent series of unfortunate events aren’t coincidental.
The Brazilians coach received a disciplinary charge from the PSL after a scuffle between himself and a security guard. To add insult to injury, Sundowns also had some key decisions go against them in matches against Bloemfontein Celtic and Bidvest Wits.
Mosimane said "They have to get rid of me because I am always a problem, a thorn in the flesh. As long as I am in football we are going to fight for the league until I retire,"
He further added "In Europe, when an official makes a mistake they knock on your door to say sorry. In SA these guys are protected, they don't say sorry and are not accountable.
"Nothing happens... it's a lost cause. You can complain 'this guy is a cry baby' but I don't care, I only tell the truth." Mosimane’s anger stems from a disallowed goal against Celtic when it was ruled as offside.
Then, another big call went against them on Sunday when they faced Bidvest Wits. The Clever boys’ goalkeeper handled a high ball in the dying moments of the game and Sundowns felt it was outside the box.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Mosimane couldn’t hide his disbelief when asked about the assault charge. According to him, the turnaround time of investigations can be lengthy but his letter was issued within 5 days.
There’s an old saying that bad things happen in threes. Following the assault charge and 2 dubious decisions, Mosimane will be hoping his luck is about to change.
