Pitso Opens Up On Clash With Downs Fans

Pitso Mosimane has again opened up on the clash with Mamelodi Sundowns fans from last weekend, saying he is not blaming the supporters but the system.

The South African tactician lifted his fourth trophy since joining Al Ahly after beating CAF Confederations Cup winners RS Berkane in the CAF Super Cup on Friday.

Mosimane was obviously pleased to add more silverware to his trophy cabinet and revealed it feels good to be appreciated on the continent before talking about the incidents at Alteridgeville, when he was insulted by a section of Masandawana fans. 

“First thank you for the good words, I didn’t even know how many trophies, I’m not counting,” he said.

“For me, it’s about winning the next trophy. In fact, it’s not about winning the next trophy, it’s about winning the next game.

“My hunger of winning the next match is bigger than winning a trophy.

“I believe if you focus on winning games, the outcome will sort itself out but I do feel good to part of contributing to Africa and I feel good to be appreciated, unlike what happened to me in my own country.”

“The last week has been too emotional for me, to be honest. But I don’t blame anybody. I have to blame the system that we come from. 

“Some people say if want to set up a black man to fail, you must use a black man to destroy him. 

“For me, it’s not about talking, it’s about… this is how you reply in football – you reply by lifting trophies, not talking about what happened last week.

“Let the work speak for yourself. I’m too matured and I move on. The only way is to congratulate everyone associated with Al Ahly, congratulate the team and everyone who is associated with me.”
