Premier Soccer League (PSL) Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane decided to come clean about once been a big supporter of Kaizer Chiefs.
“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, it is nothing personal,” the Mamelodi Sundowns coach said in an interview.
The 55-year-old Pitso Mosimane has been throwing shades at Amakhosi though-out the season, saying they are “well rested” because they are not competing in the continental titles this year. Mosimane also accused Kaizer Chiefs of benefiting from match officials’ mistakes this season.
As a result of those shade and accusations, fans of chiefs don’t want anything to do with him.
“I know a lot of people don’t like some of the things I say about them (Chiefs), but we are rivals in the league. I also talked about Orlando Pirates the same way when we were in competing for the league for the past two seasons. Not that I hated them. It is completion, nothing personal.” Mosimane said.
“The reason Mamelodi Sundowns supporters feel that (Ernst) Middendorp doesn’t like them is because he also doesn’t talk nice about us. People must understand that we are competing,” the Premier Soccer League coach said.
Chiefs and Sundowns are battling it out this season, with Sundowns needing to fix their dominance by capturing the PSL league title as they did for the past two seasons.
Kaizer Chiefs on the other hand desperately want to end the barren run of five years without a trophy.
Before the league was stopped by the COVID-19 pandemic, Kaizer Chiefs were standing at the top of the log with for points ahead of the defending champions. Sundowns still have a game in hand and winning it will see them reduce the deficit to a point.
“It is not nice when there’s just one team that is winning. We need competition,” Mosimane added.
