Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says that the way Kaizer Chiefs defeated his side is the kind of thing champions do.

A last-gasp strike from Bernard Parker earned newly-crowned Premiership champions Chiefs a 1-0 win over Sundowns at the Lucas Moripe Stadium to blow the race for second wide open.

The result reaffirmed Amakhosi's billing as league champions, having already sewn up the title last week, but for Sundowns it allowed Orlando Pirates to overtake them in the runners-up spot on goals scored, after the Buccaneers hammered SuperSport United 4-1 in one of five simultaneous matches on the night.

According to KickOff, Mosimane was at a loss for words but admits that it was “very cruel” to lose a match which they controlled most of the time.

“What can I say? This is football, it’s the nature of football and it’s one of those games,” he said after the match.

“If it has to happen, it will happen. Congratulations to Kaizer Chiefs - sometimes champions win like this, it’s very cruel, but it’s ok.”
