- Mamelodi Sundowns coach, Pitso Mosimane, says the team should focus on CAF after their defeat at the hands of SuperSport United
- He said the team takes responsibility for their loss
- According to Mosimane, United was "fresher" and Sundowns "didn't have the legs"
Mamelodi Sundowns coach, Pitso Mosimane, says his team must devote their attention to the CAF Champions League following their 2–0 loss to SuperSport United.
The loss puts at the Absa Premiership title out of their grasp, at least for now.
They have made it to the CAF semi-finals, however, and Mosimane says that should be their main focus.
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.
The coach says he thought it would serve Sundowns more to focus on CAF. They are in a solid position with regard to that league, as they decisively beat Egyptian club Al Ahly, according to the Daily Sun.
Sundowns do not have much time to dwell on their loss, however, as they head to Polokwane on Thursday for their Saturday match against Baroka FC at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium.
