Pitso Mosimane: Only Pirates can match Sundowns


Mosimane’s team has gone five games without a win in the league this season but the coach believes they have not been outplayed since they faced the Buccaneers.

Sundowns are set to take on SuperSport United in the Tshwane Derby at Loftus Stadium on Saturday.

Despite remaining fifth on the log table, Mosimane believes his team is still the best in the league.

“I am trying to find a team that can really give us a go. The only team that can play and give us toe to toe it’s one team, Orlando Pirates, and the rest I don’t want to mention their names,” said Mosimane.

“I am here to find … I am not disrespecting other teams but I am here to find a team to play toe to toe with us and really then we say we lost and we give a handshake … and say ja, this team tonight really played and outplayed us.

“I see everybody doing total withdrawal [playing deep and withdrawn] and that’s the only way [they can challenge us].”
