- Soccer fans are calling Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane out for complaining about Boroka Swallows' "time-wasting" tactics
- However, the coach himself is known for employing similar tactics
- Soccer fans have been dragging him on the app, some of them saying that he is facing "karma"
Mamelodi Sundowns, Pitso Mosimane, is at the centre of tweets from soccer fans calling him a hypocrite. This after complaining about Boroka FC allegedly employing "time-wasting'' tactics in the game between the two teams this Sunday evening.
Pitso told SuperSport after the game that Boroka goalkeeper, Ayanda Dlamini, had been delaying the game tactics, something he claims the team is good at.
“Ja, but this one was a different one. They have got Elvis Chipezeze who was a master of sitting, of killing the game. This one I don’t know his name, I think Baroka they breed them hey.
“They breed these ones who don’t allow the play to go (on). But its okay, they have to do what they have to do to survive. It’s okay. It’s not what made us lose. What made us lose is not marking in the box. But we keep going this thing has a heartbeat. It’s still going. We’ll see how it goes."
Soccer fans responded to these allegations by pointing out that Pitso had also previously employed time-wasting tactics in a game against Kaizer Chiefs earlier this year. While some of them told him it may be karma getting back at him, others posted short clips containing evidence of Sundowns players delaying the game.

Pitso Mosimane has no right crying about Ayanda Dlamini’s time wasting tactics. Karma doesn’t have amnesia. #AbsaPrem #AbsaPremiership"
"Really Pitso, he complains about Baroka's goalkeeper killing the momentum of the game when he was parking a bus when playing against Chiefs."
While @degenerationbob had this to say:
"Remember the time-wasting they did "the corner kick time wasting" ended up with the ref booking a couple of players of Sundowns. Pitso said he learned from the best, allow Baroka, they learned from the best too."
Meanwhile, Pitso also complained about a Boroka FC team member having a go at one of his own. Saying that he may have affected the players' mood throughout the game.
“A Baroka player disrespected Madisha which was not good. I don’t think it’s good, it’s bad. It’s not a good thing to do. But it’s okay, it’s part of football, we don’t have to focus more on that."
