Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has played down the
significance of his side's 2-1 win over Kaizer Chiefs in the inaugural Shell
Helix Ultra Cup.
Sundowns opened the scoring through Jeremy Brockie in the
53rd minute before a stoppage time Themba Zwane strike doubled their advantage.
Bernard Parker pulled back a late consolation goal, but Masandawana had all but
secured victory by then.
"I'm very impressed with the discipline of the game and
the tactical organisation of the game," said Mosimane in his post-match
interview, broadcasted on SABC 1. He credited his fringe players for stepping
up and taking the opportunity he handed to them.
However, Mosimane insisted that Masandawana cannot yet
afford to get carried away.
"All in all, we cannot be too boastful. This is a
pre-season cup. This doesn't mean anything," he said.
The only gripe which Mosimane mentioned with his side's
performance was the late stoppage time header which they conceded from a
"I'm disappointed with the goal. It should have been
2-0 to be honest. [It was a] lack of concentration," he said.
"But all in all, it's good to have everybody getting a
run. It doesn't mean nothing. This cup doesn't mean nothing [sic]. There are
important cups to come."
