Mamelodi Sundowns Coach Pitso Mosimane Comes Clean That He Used To Support Kaizer Chiefs
He has been labeled a ‘Kaizer Chiefs hater’ because of his constant insults at Amakhosi this season, but Pitso Mosimane says he does not hate Chiefs and in fact, he grew up supporting them. “I grew up supporting Kaizer Chiefs by the way. People don’t know that. I don’t hate Kaizer Chiefs, but they are my competition. It is nothing personal” said Mosimane.
“I know a lot of people don’t like some of the things I say about them (Chiefs), but we are rivals in the league. I also talked about the Orlando Pirates in the same way when we were competing for the league for the past two seasons. Not that I hated them. It is a competition, nothing personal”.
“The reason Mamelodi Sundowns supporters feel that (Ernst) Middendorp doesn’t like them is because he also doesn’t talk nice about us. People must understand that we are competing,” Mosimane added.
Before the league action was stopped by the coronavirus pandemic. Chiefs were top of the standings. They are four points ahead of defending champions Sundowns, but the Brazilians have a game in hand over Amakhosi. Winning that game will see them reduce the shortfall to one point.
“It is not nice when there’s just one team that is winning. We need competition,” concluded Mosimane.
