Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane showed his frustration at Orlando Pirates midfielder Fortune Makaringe's showboating during a 1-0 defeat in an Absa Premiership clash at Orlando Stadium on Wednesday.

Gabadinho Mhango struck his fourth goal in two games when he scored what proved to be the match-winner in the 30th minute.

Buccaneers head coach Josef Zinnbauer has now overseen three wins in four fixtures and remains undefeated since being appointed recently.

A contentious moment in the game though came in the 59th minute when a clearly frustrated Mosimane hit out at the showboating of Makaringe.

Mosimane grabbed the ball after it went out of play and mimicked the opposing midfielder's actions before throwing his hands out in frustration towards the crowd.

"Just upset with one thing that happened on the pitch," Mosimane said when discussing the showboating. "It's not good for football in my opinion and it's not good for [Bafana Bafana head coach] Molefi Ntseki because he is here.

"The good thing is that Fadlu came and he apologised. He's probably going to be flavour of the month but we'll see.

I don't want to be too critical of the youngster because he had a good game but it's okay."
