Sundowns coach blames himself for one-all draw

Pitso Mosimane

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has blamed himself after his team was held to a one-all draw by Chippa United in an Absa Premiership match in Port Elizabeth on Wednesday night.

The defending champions led one-nil at half time through a goal by Lebohang Maboe, before Meshack Maphangule equalised for Chippa in injury time.

Mosimane says he should have introduced a defensive player late in the game while they were still leading one-nil.

“Two points gone I think the game led me or deceived me because I could see that we can score the second goal, but forgetting that there are three minutes to go. I think we became a little bit greedy, I opted to go.”

Meanwhile, Chippa United coach Clinton Larsen is happy with his side’s performance.

“I’m very proud of the players. We just gave the structure to play and all credit should go to them….. There were going to be spells that Sundowns were to dominate like they do in other games, but we handled their movement at the top. The combination play.”
