Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs will face each other in an epic showdown on Sunday in the Premier Soccer League.
The victor of the contest will secure top spot on the log for now so the result is crucial.
Based on this, Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has turned to the Gods for an impartial referee to oversee the match.
The Downs mentor shared his frustration over the standard of officiating and took aim at the Amakhosi and their coach Ernst Middendorp.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Mosimane feels he's not alone in terms of referee sentiment.
Mosimane said, “They are enjoying the ride at the moment‚ we just have to do what we have to do and we pray that the contributors don’t help them to benefit."
He added, "Benni was crying‚ I am busy crying‚ AmaZulu was complaining‚ Steve Komphela was complaining and even Owen Da Gama is complaining."
SowetanLIVE reported that Mosimane may have attempted to play mindgames with his counterpart Ernst Middendorp.
Mosimane said, “He was always complaining about referees‚ he went to Thailand on a honeymoon and came back and now he is benefiting."
The Sundowns tactician cited the fact that Middendorp complained about the officials in the past prior to taking the helm at the Amakhosi.
Mosimane also feels he is unfairly criticised by the footballing public when he complains about refereeing decisions.
Mosimane added: "Even Jurgen Klopp was complaining after their game against Man United‚ so when Klopp complain is okay and when I am complains people saying things."
