- Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane controversially alleged that Kaizer Chiefs are favoured when it comes to penalty appeals
- Former Kaizer Chiefs player Lucky Maselesele felt that Mosimane was out of line and that the Downs mentor should respect other teams
- Maselesele added that there has been many occasions when Sundowns were flying high and it seemed as though they received preferential treatment
Earlier this week, Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane shared some controversial claims with regards to penalty incidents.
Mosimane felt aggrieved that his side were denied a penalty in their match against Black Leopards and expressed that somehow Kaizer Chiefs always enjoy successful penalty appeals.
Former Kaizer Chiefs player Lucky Maselesele has taken exception to the comments and feels that Mosimane was out of line.
KickOff.com reported that Maselesele admitted to an element of luck in Chiefs' victory, but feels that it is par for the course.
Maselesele said, "When you win matches you attract luck, it comes naturally, it follows you, so this Chiefs at the moment everything is on their side."
The former Chiefs star feels that there's been countless occasions when Sundowns were on a roll and it seemed as though they received preferential treatment from referees.
Maselesele added, "Pitso was wrong to drag Chiefs, yes we have to listen to him during post-match interviews shining there, yes we have to hail and praise him, don't get me wrong, I respect and like him for what he has achieved in South Africa, the best coach at the moment with the best squad, best budget."
Maselesele went further to add that Mosimane needs to remember that the Brazilians are not the only team in the league and that he needs to respect all others.
Briefly.co.za understands that Maselesele agrees with calls for Video Assistant Referee (VAR) to be introduced in Mzansi and that it's the best way to improve the standard of officiating.
