Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has revealed that despite his war of words with Ernst Middendorp, he does not have a problem with the Kaizer Chiefs coach.
The Masadawana coach has been vocal in the press in the build up to the clash between the Absa Premiership top two on Sunday.
Mosimane has insisted his team do not need to beat Chiefs to win the league, while also commenting on the refereeing decisions that have gone the way of the Soweto giants.
With the hype in full flow ahead of the game, Mosimane insisted on Thursday that nothing he says is personal.

‘I don’t have an issue with Middendorp,’ Mosimane said the record straight.
‘I am calm and looking forward to the game – it is three points like any other match. He (Middendorp) is doing exceptional work and has turned the team around. He has said things about me also. So, I can’t hit back? But Chiefs is a big team, and finished outside the Top 8 last season. How long can you go? When you finished there? Should we say congratulations now that you are top of the table? They can only go up. He has got the team and they are difficult to beat. But we will say it: they are benefitting (from referees).’
