Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns head coach, Pitso Mosimane, took the blame for his side's 1-0 loss to Platinum Stars in the Telkom Knockout semi-final. Mamelodi Sundowns head coach, Pitso Mosimane, took the blame for his side's 1-0 loss to Platinum Stars in the Telkom Knockout semi-final.
According to the soccerladuma website, former Sundowns striker, Eleazar Rodgers, scored a superb solo effort to condemn his former employers to defeat and the Brazilian's boss believes it was an error from Mario Booysens and Thabo Nthete that caused the goal.
"Difficult times hey, I think the game plan in the first half was perfect, movement, the passing of the ball well, chances being created again, chances not taken," Mosimane said after the game.
"Once chance and they scored, there's nothing else that I could say that these guys were coming to score, but it's the game of football, they suck you in and one chance and one break.
"It was a tactical error from the two centre-backs, against Pirates we had the same thing, it was the same side where Kermit Erasmus scored and I addressed it. I worked on it and it went well, my right center back could have covered my left center-back and you lose a game like this, with only that, nothing else."
"At end the of the day it's all on the coach, I addressed it, we have discussed it, we have discovered it but I'm the coach, I take full responsibility, It's my team, it's sad a game of football goes like this."
