Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns defender Tebogo Langerman believes it's not fair coaches get all the blame when a team is not delivering satisfactory results.

Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has this season been subjected to the wrath of angry supporters calling for his head after a string of negative results.

Despite an improvement in performances and results, the future of Mosimane continues to be the subject of speculation.

However, Langerman has defended his coach ahead of the Brazilians' clash with Chippa United in the first round of the at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday, saying players should shoulder much of the blame.

"I don't think the problem is with the coach. If they want someone to blame, they should blame us as players," Langerman toldSoccer Laduma.

"It's our duty to win games and to do that we need the support of our fans. They should be there to support us and we will fight for results. They should not blame the coach."
