Mosimane also accepted responsibility the team's loss, saying, "We put ourselves in this position," admitting that SuperSport United's side was "fresher". As a result of their defeat, they now sit at third place on the Absa Premiership log. 

Mosimane had made some changes to Sundowns' line-up for the match. He said the team's defending was not up to scratch and that they essentially lost the match over a "soft corner kick", Briefly.co.za has gathered.
