Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane admits that he has no shame over benefiting from the late offside call that ruled out Judas Moseamedi’s goal.
The Brazilians managed to clinch their first Telkom Knockout Cup trophy since 2015 after securing a 2-1 victory over Mairtzburg United at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday evening.
However, the outcome of the game could’ve have ended differently after Moseamedi’s stoppage time header was flagged for offside, although there is much debate surround the linesman’s call.
Mosimane insists that he would like to benefit more from the referee’s decisions in the future.
‘My heart stopped, I thought it’s a goal, thanks God I saw the linesman raising the flag, I don’t know if it’s offside or not, if it’s not, I benefited and I have no shame,’ Mosimane told SuperSport TV after the game.
‘Some people have been getting all these benefits, I will get them, I want them for five games in a row. I’ve got no shame on that. It is the way it is in this Premier League, it’s a jungle!
‘I didn’t see that [penalty appeal for Sundowns in the first-half], I have to be honest but look I’ve got no emotions, I’ve got cold nerves on the refereeing the way it happens in the country, if I have to benefit five games in a row I’ll glady take it home because people have done it in a series of games, so it’s my chance, congratulations to Mamelodi Sundowns, we’ve won it and fairly with good goals and that’s it, we lift the trophy, no stories!’
