Pitso: We struggled to play football

Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane did not shy away from criticising his charges after a 1-1 stalemate against Chippa United.

Mosimane's side took the lead in difficult conditions when Wayne Arendse capitalised on poor defending to fire home from inside the box on 19 minutes.

But the Chilli Boys responded before half-time as Rhulani Manzini scored from the penalty spot after Arendse was deemed to have fouled Buyani Sali in the action of shooting.

The second-half was played at a good tempo despite being hindered by the poor surface, although there were no further goals as the game finished all-square.

"Both teams had chances, they had chances, but, under the circumstances, we will take a point because we [struggled] to play football,” Mosimane said as quoted by KickOff.

"We played 'that' type of football, [with the ball] up in the air. That's not football. That's not good for Chippa, it's not good for Sundowns; we don't play percentage football.

"The rest... there's no football, it's a fight. That's not football."

Sundowns will shift the focus to the CAF Super Cup where they will meet CAF Confederation Cup winners TZ Mazembe on Saturday, February 18.

Kick off is at 19:00.
