Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane was at it again this weekend, accusing Polokwane City of using ‘bus tactics’ following his side’s first defeat of the season.
According to the supersport.com website, Sundowns suffered a shocking 1-0 loss to the minnows, a result that saw them religuish their unbeaten run in the Absa Premiership so far. Speaking to SuperSport in a post-match interview, Mosimane dismissed City’s ploy to gunner points.
“It had to come sometime, it’s life, it’s football. They had one chance and they score, I thought maybe it was an own-goal am not sure. Shame it’s football and it’s sad,” he said
“It was a nice big bus and a truck, you can’t move the bus and you can’t move the truck. But I understand Boobie desperately needed the points. We needed them too but they needed them more than us. That is why their centre-back is the man of the match, that tells you that the biggest bus was there,” added Mosimane.City defender Thapelo Tshilo was the man of the match as he marshaled the defence with distinction. Fresh from clobbering AmaZulu 7-1, it was expected that Sundowns would steamroll City, who had one win in seven outings prior to the Downs match but it was not to be.
Mosimane claimed teams were scared of his charges and that they always employed defensive tactics whenever they played Sundowns.
“I hope there is no other bus coming. All the games we play, there is a bus parked but we have to try and move the bus. The bus has no driver anyway and no keys anyway, the keys are lost,” he concluded.
Mosimane had lambasted the referee Lwandile Mfiki despite his side’s 7-1 Absa Premiership win against AmaZulu on Tuesday and also said his charges had not played well despite the massive win.
Downs still have a game in hand and they face Free State Stars at Loftus on November 6.
