- Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane disclosed an unbelievable revelation recently
- The Downs mentor actually grew up supporting Kaizer Chiefs in his youth
- Many Amakhosi fans feel that Mosimane has a personal vendetta against the club due to his constant jibes
The rivalry between Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns has grown steadily and started to boil over this season.
Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has never minced his words when it comes to Chiefs and has felt that they've benefited from referee bias this season.
Mosimane's mind games have reached such an extent that Chiefs supporters strongly believe he has a personal vendetta against their beloved club.
However, Briefly.co.za learnt that Mosimane recently made an unexpected revelation in a recent interview.
IOL reported that the Downs tactician supported the Glamour Boys in his youth.
Mosimane said, “I grew up supporting Kaizer Chiefs by the way. People don’t know that. I don’t hate Kaizer Chiefs, but they are my competition."
Aside from the claims of bias, Mosimane has questioned the tactics of the Amakhosi and often mentions the amount of rest their players have enjoyed this season.
However, he explained that his focus on Chiefs is due to them being Sundowns' closest title rivals this season. In fact, the Amakhosi still lead the Absa Premiership standings.
Mosimane added, “The reason Mamelodi Sundowns supporters feel that Middendorp doesn’t like them is because he also doesn’t talk nice about us. People must understand that we are competing.”
