- Pitso Mosimane defended his controversial statement regarding the PSL title
- The Mamelodi Sundowns coach implied last week that he does not care if Orlando Pirates were to win the league this season
- Mosimane emphasised that the views expressed were his own and not a reflection of the club
Pitso Mosimane has defended the statement he made last week, which has invoked strong reactions from Mzansi football followers.
Mosimane indicated that he did not care that his Mamelodi Sundowns side drew level on points with Orlando Pirates.
The Sundowns coach’s controversial statement seemingly implied that he does not care whether the PSL trophy is won by the Brazilians or Buccaneers.
SowetanLIVE reported that Mosimane feels it is acceptable if Sundowns don’t win the PSL this season.
Mosimane said, “That’s my own opinion but I respect all the supporters and I also cannot put that mood into the players and into the dressing room.”
The Brazilians are currently tied on 50 points on the log, but have an inferior goal difference to Pirates.
The outspoken coach pointed out that the views expressed were his own and did not necessarily represent the club.
Briefly.co.za also understands that Mosimane doesn’t believe in the idea of being a good loser.
He went on to add, “Some people say I’m a bad loser‚ but I've never seen a good loser. The coach who loses and smiles is going to get the sack!”
