- Pitso Mosimane shared the revelation that he’s still not sure if Mamelodi Sundowns have won the league
- Sundowns secured back-to-back PSL league titles following their final day victory at Free State Stars
- Mosimane admitted to being in disbelief as his side was forced to overcome numerous challenges this season
Mamelodi Sundowns coach, Pitso Mosimane, shared a strange revelation following his team’s triumph over the weekend.
Sundowns wrapped up their second ABSA premiership league title in a row but the Brazilians’ boss says he still doesn’t know if his side has won the title.
Mosimane said, "Even now I don’t know if I won the league‚ all I know is that I have the medal and the trophy‚ so let’s see what happens."
TimesLIVE reported that Mosimane wasn’t confident that Sundowns could pull it off this season.
Mosimane admits he felt it would be a tall order as his team weren’t scoring enough goals.
The straight-talking coach cited the transfers of Khama Billiat and Percy Tau as well as the CAF Champions League commitments as some of the major hurdles Sundowns needed to overcome.
The back-to-back league triumph was secured when Sundowns beat Free State Stars away from home on the final day of the season.
He added, “There are the other emotional reasons‚ you won the league but you still don’t know if you have it.
Briefly.co.za understands that the Sundowns legal team are braced to counter the PSL’s appeal of a previous ruling made by its Disciplinary Committee.
The committee fined the team R250 000 for fielding an ineligible player, Wayne Arendse, against Bidvest Wits last year.
However, the PSL has since questioned the decision and appealed to SA Football Association (Safa) to have it revoked.
The PSL feels that Wits should be awarded a 3-0 win instead of the monetary fine.
The outcome is set to be finalised within the next few days.
Meanwhile Mosimane was gracious in victory and commended his coaching counterparts.
He said, "I must congratulate the rest of the coaches in the league and my friend Milutin Sredojević.”
