Head coach Rulani Mokwena said he was dissatisfied with his side's performance despite Mamelodi Sundowns clinching a record-breaking 1-0 win over Kaizer Chiefs at FNB Stadium on Saturday.

The unstoppable Brazilians secured their 12th consecutive win to set a new DStv Premiership record and extend their lead at the top of the standings to a formidable 17 points.

Mokwena has now produced an incredible winning record since being named as head coach with eight consecutive wins while conceding just a solitary goal.

Speaking after the final whistle though, Mokwena insisted he was far from satisfied with his team's performance for large parts of Saturday's encounter.

"I have to speak to the players first but generally it was just too open," Mokwena said post-match.

"Not enough control, but the reasons for that I am going to speak to the players first before I come out in the media about it.

"It's not that I don't want to speak about it, it's just that I want to speak to my players first where they must be privileged to hear my opinions first before the public.

"I'm not dissatisfied with the effort and commitment, but there's more to a football match than effort and commitment. Organisational forms were good but generally I felt the game was too open."


Sundowns next face TS Galaxy in a DStv Premiership clash on Tuesday.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
