Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has revealed that
despite his criticisms of Kaizer Chiefs over the years, he actually grew up
supporting the Soweto club.
The 55-year-old former Bafana and SuperSport coach played
for a number of clubs throughout his career.
After starting out at Jomo Cosmos, Mosimane also turned out
for Sundowns and Orlando Pirates in South Africa, as well as playing in Greece
As he reflects on life while stuck at home during the
coronavirus, Mosimane explained the reason for his past comments about Chiefs
despite a long-held loyalty.
He told IOL website: "I grew up supporting Kaizer Chiefs by the
way. People don't know that. I don't hate Kaizer Chiefs, but they are my
competition. It is nothing personal.
"I know a lot of people don’t like some of the things I
say about them (Chiefs), but we are rivals in the league. I also talked about
Orlando Pirates in the same way when we were competing for the league for the
past two seasons. Not that I hated them. It is competition, nothing
