Pretoria - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has said the Brazilians’ supporters must stop calling for his head and be patient with the team following their poor season so far.

The reigning champions have registered four defeats so far in the 2014/15 PSL season, much to the disapproval of their loyal fans.

'Jingles' however, hinted that his team has quality players who need time and support for them to bounce back to the form which earned them a 6th league title last season.

"Our people must just be patient," said Mosimane.

"We are a good team and we have quality players in our squad.

"I have a good board that supports me and the team to keep going."

"I also have a good president who supports me all the way.

"My job is not under threat at all and if it’s under threat then I have no pressure at all.

"This has been my job and I have been doing this for 14 years.

"So people can criticise and call us names like bafana ba tshelete (Loaded brats) and all those stupid things it’s okay."

The Chloorkop-based outfit are currently fifth on the log after 11 games.
