Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane hailed the importance of his
side’s Absa Premiership win over Ajax Cape Town on Tuesday night.
According to the soccerladuma.co.za website, the Brazilians beat the Urban warriors 3-1 at Loftus and Mosimane said
the win was crucial in their bid to crack the top half of the table.
“We needed this win, we are desperate and we needed the points. We need
to move up a little bit, we are trying to make the top eight,” he said.
“We laboured, it was hard work but it was well earned. I knew in the second half they would be emotional and want to equalise.”
The former Bafana Bafana coach went on to state that he would not stop
tinkering with his team as he searched for the most fruitful
“Our transition is good, I’m happy to keep going and exploring and
giving other guys a chance to play. I brought Eleazar (Rodgers) today,
our lucky charm,” said Mosimane.
“I was talking with the president, Patrice (Motsepe), and he said
Eleazar is out lucky charm and he was our lucky charm (Tuesday).
“As much as I want to take the team out of where they are and into top
eight I am not afraid of exploring. At the end of the season I must know
who did what and give everyone a fair chance to play.
“There is 21 points to play for, on Tuesday we created five chances and we
took three. I’m happy, last time we created five and didn’t score. “
