Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has criticised the heavy domestic fixture schedule, arguing that it was to the detriment of teams competing in continental tournaments.

The incumbent Absa Premiership champions have had to juggle their obligations at home and in CAF competition.

The Brazilians will take a 3-1 advantage into the second-leg of their CAF Confederation Cup play-off tie against Ghana's Medeama SC on 17 May.

"It's either we change the programme to suit Africa or we change the programme to suit our local football, you know what I'm trying to say," Mosimane told KickOff.

"I'm the last one to talk about that programme. I have complained a lot about playing every three days. I have complained a lot about playing Orlando Pirates in the Nedbank Cup after AS Vita. I complained a lot having to play Vita away and having a big game three days before."
