Saturday Aug 02, 2014. 20:24Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane slammed fullback Tebogo Langerman following his sides 2-1 MTN 8 quarter-final loss to Platinum Stars at Loftus Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
“My fullback [Langerman] was not clever there, not committed; very, very unprofessional approach inside the box. I can do nothing about it as a coach. All I can do is to show him and correct him. The second goal was also from the left side."
Sundowns were not only guilty of weak defending, but also poor finishing with new arrivals Lindokuhle Mbatha and Bongi Ntuli culpable of missing golden opportunities during the second-half.
Mosimane added: "Talent we have, but if we make mistakes like this, and miss the chances we have, its not about talent, but we have to accept that we lost, as long as we understand why we lost."
Sundowns open their title defence with a game against Maritzburg United at Loftus Stadium on Friday.
