• Mosimane: I don’t have favourites at Sundowns

    Pitso Mosimane of Mamelodi Sundowns

    Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has insisted that he does not play favourites at the club and instead makes decisions to win games and ensure he keeps his job.

    Mosimane and Sundowns have come under fire in recent seasons for stock piling talent that end up sitting on the bench or in the stands.

    The strength in depth at Sundowns is clear for all to see and with several stars having to settle for minimal to no game time resulting in a few unhappy players.

    Jeremy Brockie, Oupa Manyisa, George Lebese and Andile Jali are just some of the most recent stars to struggle to break into the first team at Downs but Mosimane has inistsed that it is on the players to take their chance when given one.

    ‘I always say the best way for players to prove me wrong when they are not playing is to grab their chance when they get one,’ Mosimane told the media.

    ‘You can’t have issues with players when you are a coach and the stakes are high. As a coach, you always want to win. So, why have issues with a player that can help you win games? Only small coaches have issues. If you prove me wrong, I will play you. If I have a player that can help me win games, I will play you,’ he explained.

    ‘When you do well and score, you don’t do it for me. It’s your job. Should we applaud you for coming to work? I don’t have favourites. I want to keep my job. So, I must play the best players,’ he concluded.
