Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns boss Pitso Mosimane says his side's full
focus now switches to winning the Absa Premiership after Sunday's 3-1 defeat to
Maritzburg United in a Nedbank Cup semi-final.
Despite going an early goal up from a Gaston Sirino finish,
strikes from Lebohang Maboe, Mxolisi Kunene and Fortune Makaringe ensured the
victory went to the outfit from Pietermaritzburg.

Speaking to SuperSport, he said: "What is important?
The league, where you have already played 27 games and to finish on top or the
Nedbank cup where you have played four games, what is your priority?
"I'm not saying that because we lost, we want to win,
but what is bigger? The league! So we need to try again, we controlled the game
in the first half. There was never a problem for us. It is the red card (for
Gaston Sirino). That’s the way that the referee saw that, so we should accept
"Congratulations to them (Maritzburg). They deserve it
more than us. They need the cup, we need the league. Not to say we didn't want
the cup, we wanted the cup, but you can't get everything.
"You must take whatever is on offer and fight again. We
can win on Wednesday."
