Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns striker Katlego Mashego has called on the section of supporters who boo the team to rather throw their backing behind the Brazilians.

The Tshwane giants have failed to truly flatter during their Premiership title defence this term, with some fans taking to jeering the players and coach Pitso Mosimane.

A standout incident for Mashego came in last weekend's Telkom Knockout last-16 tie against University of Pretoria when fans booed Wayne Arendse while he warmed up.

Mosimane eventually decided against fielding the defender, with Asavela Mbekile the man to come on for Teko Modise instead during the 2-1 Ziwa Mo success, and Mashego hopes the supporters can see what sort of a negative impact booing can have on the players.

“I don't worry much when supporters boo players and all of that. It is not good. It is not supposed to be done,” Mashego says.

“Supporters are supposed to be behind the team and support whatever decision the coach takes on the field.

“It is up to the coach to decide what to do in the game, so you can't have people showing their displeasure like that and doing it to the player that belongs to the club. It was not good and it is not nice.”

After a poor start to the Absa Premiership Pitso Mosimane’s charges climbed back into the top four holding firmly on fourth position - eight points off first position (Kaizer Chiefs) and two points off second spot (Ajax Cape Town).

Sundowns return to action on Saturday, October 18 at the Loftus Stadium in PSL encounter against Bidvest Wits.

Kick-off is at 18:00.
