Following his recent remarks on Kaizer Chiefs, Pitso Mosimane gives Kaizer Chiefs supporters optimism.
Pitso finally admits it: Previously, I was a Chiefs fan.
DURBAN – South Africa’s cat has escaped the bag. Pitso Mosimane was once a die-hard Kaizer Chiefs supporter when he was a young child from Kagiso!
“By the way, I grew up cheering for the Kaizer Chiefs.” That is a fact that few people are aware of. I don’t dislike Kaizer Chiefs, but they are a rival of mine. In an interview, the Mamelodi Sundowns coach stated, “It’s nothing personal.”
Throughout the season, Mosimane has aimed jibes at Amakhosi. Because they are not contending for any continental crowns this year, he refers to Chiefs as a “well-rested” team. Pitso, who is 55 years old, hasn’t shied away from accusing Chiefs of profiting from refereeing errors this season.
As a result, Chiefs fans despise Mosimane, despite the fact that he was previously a family member…
“I know a lot of people don’t appreciate what I say about them (the Chiefs), but we’re league rivals.” When we were competing for the league the last two seasons, I also talked about the Orlando Pirates in the same way. They didn’t bother me in the least. It’s just a game; it’s not about you.” According to Mosimane.
“Mamelodi Sundowns fans believe (Ernst) Middendorp dislikes them since he also does not speak well of us.” Mosimane stated, “People must recognize that we are competitors.”
Pitso Mosimane revealed that he was formerly an Amakhosi supporter.
This season, the Chiefs and Sundowns are vying for the PSL crown. After winning the league title for the past two seasons, the Sundowns hope to cement their domination.
The Brazilians are aiming for a hat-trick of titles, while the Chiefs are anxious to break a five-year drought without a trophy.
Chiefs were in first place in the rankings before Covid-19 brought the competition to a halt. On the log, the Glamour Boys lead the defending champions by four points. Sundowns, on the other hand, still have a game in hand. If they win that game, they will cut their deficit to one point.
“It’s not nice when there’s only one winning team.” Mosimane added, “We need competition.”
