Mosimane: Red card cost us
Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane believes that his side controlled the game despite their 1-0 loss to Moroka Swallows on Tuesday night.
According to the soccerladuma website
, the former Bafana Bafana tactician admits that the result was fair, after they saw Method Mwanjali sent off for a foul on David Mathebula in the area - which allowed Siyabonga Nomvethe to slot the winner from the spot.
Mosimane believes that if they had kept a full complement of players for the 90 minutes, the result would have been different though.VIDEO: Sundowns v Swallows, highlights
"We controlled the game from the beginning to the end. What more do you want? We were just unfortunate with the penalty - I think it was a penalty - but we need consistency," he said, in reference to previous decisions that had not gone his way.
"I had a penalty against Golden Arrows - I'd also like to benefit. Maybe the third time I will benefit.
"It was a good game, we controlled it. Swallows was never there. Sometimes it is unbelievable, you see players falling over, don't want to play - where is the fair play. Ten against 11... play football. With 11 vs 11, I would never have lost this game.
"We have character. What a team. We don't sit back, we go on, we created chances."
