- Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane shared his frustrations regarding his team's penalty record compared to Kaizer Chiefs
- Sundowns were denied a penalty in their match against Black Leopards, whereas Chiefs were awarded one for a similar incident
- Mosimane's comments created a stir and Briefly.co.za assessed the public reaction
Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane is not one to mine his words and Tuesday evening was no exception.
Mosimane bemoaned the fact that his team was denied a penalty after an appeal against Black Leopards.
According to Mosimane it was the second time that Sundowns were wrongfully denied this season.
Conversely, Kaizer Chiefs were awarded a penalty for a similar shout in their fixture, which prompted Mosimane to have the controversial outburst while speaking to SuperSport.
The Downs mentor said, "When it's Chiefs, it's always a penalty, it was a penalty [for] Chiefs yesterday. I must get a penalty also, I must benefit. Chiefs is benefiting from the mistakes of referees, it's not about Chiefs, I'm highlighting the realities. It is true, no matter what."
The claim sparked huge debate amongst football followers and Briefly.co.za gauged the public reaction.
Scobie Malone (@malone_scobie) commented: "Pitso Mosimane's head has grown so big, that he thinks he's bigger, not only Sundowns but the entire SA football."
Chief Erican (@EricanSA) said, "Like him or hate, he speaks the truth."
Amakhosi 4 LIVE (@amakhosi4live) asked, "What did you guys think of Pitso’s words about Kaizer Chiefs last night? Should he not receive some kind of disciplinary measures from the PSL after his remarks about the referee?"
Walter Wale Downs (@Walle_Muhenyeri) said, "Pitso knows how to touch where it hurts most."
