Pitso Mosimane: I don't have the character to play modest


Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says he will never hide his views whenever he feels short-changed in football.

Mosimane remains one of the most outspoken coaches in local football and in recent weeks has been vocal about the possibility of his team being deducted points.

Sundowns were found guilty of fielding illegible player Wayne Arendse during their league game against Bidvest Wits at Lucas Moripe Stadium last year but the PSL is yet to deliver the verdict after it was postponed recently due to the club's commitments in the CAF Champions League.

'Jingles' has vowed not to keep quiet when he feels unhappy about any issues in football.

"I am myself, Steve Komphela is himself, and we are outspoken," said Mosimane.

"Normally people take it in different ways, especially me in my space. If I feel I am short-changed, I don't like it. If I lose to SuperSport United, I am okay, there is no problem. But when I feel short-changed... because I put all my hard work into this thing, I work very hard and I prepare the team... when I feel the work I put in is taken out of me, I become a different person.

"I don't have a problem to lose. Yes some people say I am a bad loser but I have never seen a good loser. The coach who loses and smiles is going to get sacked. So yes I take it hard, I don't like losing. Who likes losing?

"Probably maybe I must play modest and all that, I don't know. But I don't have that character of playing modest when I lose. I lost yes I am sad, I am not happy and when I feel I've been short-changed, I say what I have to say."
