Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane is slowly but surely throwing in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) championship towel after two consecutively defeats against Orlando Pirates and Bidvest Wits to close the gap with Kaizer Chiefs.
Mosimane is sabotaging himself with his tactical philosophy of building his winning combination around few individuals than building a successful and sustainable team winning combination.
Despite having adequate of talented and quality players, Mosimane’s team selection is subjective to few players which resulted in poor form when some of the special players are not in the team through suspension or injury.
It was disheartening listening to Mosimane attributing his defeats against Pirates and Wits to the absence of key players in his team. His utterances will demoralise other players who are not part of the winning combination.
Mosimane should treat his players equal as I don’t believe that a big team like Sundowns should be built around one man as they are always struggling when either Khama Billiat or Alje Schut are out with suspension or injury.
The championship battle is not yet over but Mosimane must desist from relying on few individual by building a confident and collective winning team without giving certain players special treatment and attention.
