Cape Town - Pitso Mosimane says Mamelodi Sundowns cannot be expected to
win every match they play following their 2-0 defeat to Baroka in the Telkom
A 22nd minute Mdatsene Mduduzi penalty and own-goal from
Reyaad Pieterse on 68 minutes sealed the result, and progression to semi-finals
of the competition for Bakgaga.
Mosimane will now turn his attention back to the Absa Premiership,
where Sundowns are currently in sixth place on the league standings, as well as
the CAF Champions League.
Mosimane told KickOff website: "We want the Telkom, but
we can't win them all hey. You'll win everything?
"No. It's okay, it's a league cup. We've got to move
on, we've got the league which is more important. We have the Champions League
starting in three to four weeks' time. We have to focus, you can't have
He added: "The Champions League [first leg] final was
played yesterday [Friday] and the boys were texting, not happy...should have
been there. That's the space we operate in, to represent South Africa and to
make sure we get the rankings and do what Orlando Pirates did.
“But back home I understand we are more domestic. We don't
know international football a lot, most of us. You asked me, do I want to win
the Champions League or Telkom Knockout? I think you know the answer.”
Up next for Sundowns is a league clash with Free State Stars
at Loftus Stadium on Wednesday.
