Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says he will never be afraid to voice his views when it comes to defending the good name of the club.

Mosimane has never been scared to express his opinion about the standards of officiating in South Africa and has been highly vocal about the situation regarding Wayne Arendse.

Sundowns are facing a possible points deduction for fielding the ineligible player in a Premiership match last year.

Speaking to reporters, 'Jingles' said: "I am myself, Steve Komphela is himself, and we are outspoken.

"Normally people take it in different ways, especially me in my space. If I feel I am short-changed, I don't like it. If I lose to SuperSport United, I am okay, there is no problem.

"But when I feel short-changed... because I put all my hard work into this thing, I work very hard and I prepare the team... when I feel the work, I put in is taken out of me, I become a different person.

"I don't have a problem to lose. Yes, some people say I am a bad loser, but I have never seen a good loser. The coach who loses and smiles is going to get sacked. So yes, I take it hard, I don't like losing. Who likes losing?

"Probably maybe I must play modest and all that, I don't know. But I don't have that character of playing modest when I lose. I lost yes I am sad, I am not happy and when I feel I've been short-changed, I say what I have to say."

The Brazilians are currently in Morocco as they are set to face Wydad Casablanca in a CAF Champions First leg semi-final on Friday.

Kick-off at is 21:00 (SA time).
