Briefly.co.za earlier reported on Kaizer Chiefs hero Samir Nurkovic and how he inspired the Amakhosi to a vital 2-0 win over Mamelodi Sundowns on Sunday.

However, Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane was less than impressed with the result and slammed the match officials again for allowing the first goal to stand.

Mosimane said, "I don't know if Pirates supporters will allow it."
