According to KickOff.com, Sundowns boss Mosimane reacted to criticsim after the Brazilians lured Mame Niang to Sundowns.

“Mamelodi Sundowns is like Barcelona, it is not just about winning but you have to win playing good football as well,” said Mosimane.

“That is why I was criticised for bringing Mame Niang on board.”

Niang got onto the scoresheet against Swallows when in the 52nd minute, he controlled Ramahlwe Mphahlele's near-post cross before slotting in a close range effort past goalkeeper Greg Etafia. 

Mosimane also heaped praised his team for shutting out Swallows' danger-man Lerato Chabungu. Chabungu had been in fine form for his team so far in the PSL and after scoring against both Orlando Pirates and AmaZulu.
