Sundowns running own race and not one with Chiefs: Mosimane

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane insists they are not interested in what their neighbours or anyone else in the Absa Premiership is doing. Instead, the Mamelodi Sundowns coach says they are fully focused on their own programme this season.

The Brazilians are currently going through a rough patch after managing to pick up just one point out of nine available in their last three matches.

That has seen them slip-up in the defence of their league title, with the champions now trailing log leaders Kaizer Chiefs by 10 points following a weekend defeat to Lamontville Golden Arrows.

Sundowns lost to Chiefs just over two weeks ago when they fell to a 2-0 loss at home, before going on to draw with Baroka FC in their next game.

This past weekend they were stunned 3-2 by Abafana Bes’thende in wet and windy conditions in Durban.

24 hours earlier, Chiefs won the Soweto derby against Orlando Pirates by the same margin.

Mosimane praised Chiefs for getting results this season, but he also warned that Amakhosi were not their only rivals in the Premier Soccer League (PSL).

Mosimane also highlighted how Sundowns had established their own template of success at Chloorkop since he took charge of the club in 2012.

They have dominated South African football in that period and also made inroads in Africa where they won the Caf Champions League in 2016.

The former Bafana Bafana coach says he does not want to dwell on things that are out of his control, but instead continue looking forward at the bigger picture for his club.
