Pitso Mosimane not afraid to admit to benefiting from referee


Sundowns claimed their first Telkom Knockout title since 2015 with a 2-1 victory over Maritzburg United in Durban on Saturday evening.

Things could have ended differently after Moseamedi's stoppage time header was flagged for offside but where the striker was offside or not, Mosimane is hoping 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" he told SuperSport TV.

"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!," he went on.

"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!"
