- Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane took aim at Kaizer Chiefs once again
- The Downs mentor feels that Chiefs players have an added advantage, as they will be even more well-rested than his charges
- Mosimane cited the strain of continental football and warned that next season will be much tougher for the Glamour Boys
All football has ceased, but that didn't stop Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane from talking about his title rivals, Kaizer Chiefs.
Prior to the league being put on hold, Kaizer Chiefs were flying in the Absa Premiership.
At one point, they led by a massive 10 points, but the Brazilians reduced this to only four. They also still have a game in hand.
However, Mosimane re-iterated his view that the Amakhosi are still title favourites and that they have an unfair advantage.
TimesLIVE reported that Mosimane bemoaned the disparity in the playing schedules between the two teams this season.
Mosimane said, “We are rested now but they (Chiefs) are well rested because they have never had anything to do.”
He added, "They play every seven days while we have been all over the place and travelling on the continent in the Champions League.”
However, Mosimane warned his rivals that next season will be a different ball game, as they are bound to qualify for continental football.
Mosimane explained, “If you win the PSL it means you have a good team but next year they won’t be rested and that will be the test of how they cope. "
Sundowns have had to balance local football with the pressures and demands of the Champions League for the last six seasons.
After a solid run this season, they were eventually knocked out by Egyptian giants Al Ahly.
Although Mosimane regularly throws shade at the Amakhosi, Briefly.co.za previously reported that the Downs mentor actually grew up supporting Kaizer Chiefs in his youth.
He explained that his jibes aimed at Chiefs are nothing personal.
