Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has fired back at Rodney Ramagalela for his claim that the Brazilians' defence is slow. 

Former Sundowns striker Ramagalela scored two goals as Polokwane City downed the title favourites 2-1 on Tuesday, before taking a swipe at his former employers after the game. 

"It's always a nice feeling to score against your former team even though I did not expect to score two goals," Ramagalela was quoted by SowetanLive

"I always knew I would score against them because I studied their defence which is very slow. What I knew was that I am quicker than them because they are slow," he said. 

But, Mosimane shot back, saying: "He scored two goals and he is a hero for his team. Leave him to have fun. 

"He should have targeted this when he was with us," said the former Bafana boss. 

After their defeat on Tuesday, and Wednesday's results, Sundowns find themselves in fifth place on the league table having picked up three points from their two games.
