Mosimane: I know my problems

Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane knows he has a long road ahead of him as he attempts to restore the Brazilians into a top Premier Soccer League side.

According to the Football411 website, the former Bafana Bafana boss took over from Johan Neeskens with the team rooted to the bottom of the league standings and in a woeful run of form.

He has since restored the confidence of his talented players, but after such a testing start the Chloorkop outfit continue to struggle for their top-flight status.

In 11th place with 29 points and four games to go, Sundowns are not yet safe just six points clear of the relegation places.

And following their 1-0 loss to Bloemfontein Celtic on Saturday, Mosimane admitted they have a lot of hard work ahead of them.

"It's tough times. We must go through adversity," Mosimane said.

"I have a good team, I have a team that tries to win. I will be back next season. I'm hurting but I will be back.

"I know my problems. Our technique is not good at the end, it's not that we are unfortunate."

He added: "How many times have we seen my team play against other teams and the coaches come here and say, 'we didn't play well, but we won'?

"We apply the wrong technique. We use the left foot when we're supposed to use the right; we shoot when we're supposed to place the ball.

"When results aren't coming, it's easy to blame and it's easy to point fingers. This team, every week, presses other teams. We just don't apply the right technique at the end, so I will fix it."
