Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has bemoaned the decision to hold the 2015 Nedbank Cup final in Port Elizabeth.

The league's governing body, the PSL, announced the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium as the venue for the cup clash, a decision that does not sit well with Mosimane.

He feels that the city of Durban would have been a more apt choice, considering the fact that previous editions of the competition had taken place at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

"We don't have a say, whether we like it or not, we will go," Mosimane told the Sowetan Live.

"I think the conditions in PE suit Ajax better. I would have liked to go to Durban instead.

"The other problem with PE is the difficulty for our fans to get there. I don't know who makes these decisions, and what helps them make these decisions. All I know is that this is difficult."

Mosimane's men saw off the challenge of National First Division side Vasco Da Gama in the Nedbank Cup semi-finals, a welcome result following what has been a disappointing end to the Premiership season.
