Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says he doesn’t want to talk about the Premier Soccer League’s (PSL) appeal against a Disciplinary Committee (DC) ruling over the Wayne Arendse case.
Last week the DC handed ‘Downs a fine of R250 000 and R50 000 to Arendse, who was deemed ineligible to play in the Absa Premiership match against Bidvest Wits in the first half of the season.
The PSL has now appealed to the SAFA legal council in an attempt to overturn the ruling, which could see the game awarded to Wits on a 3-0 score line and affect Sundowns’ standings on the log.
The Brazilians head into the final round of the season this weekend with a two-point lead over Orlando Pirates at the top of the log.
“Well l said what I said and I don't want to speak again. I don't want to be the coach always talking and PSL is talking,” said Mosimane, who has had his fair share of run-ins with the league organisers.
“I am a football coach and I must stick to the pitch. Yugesh [Singh, Sundowns official] is there. Sundowns should say something, I don't want to be saying a lot.
“I have created a lot of enemies and I don't need this and I told you how I feel about this.”
He continued: “If Sundowns wins it [the league title]I am happy for the boys, I am happy for these people singing on top of the voices for me.
“I am not going to be one running around with the trophy and get excited because I don't understand this season. Really I don't understand it. What’s happening?
“I told them go and try your do a best win the league. Try to win in Free State [against Free State Stars on Saturday]. Whatever happens happens.
“For me it’s beyond our control. It’s unbelievable at this point in time one game left and still talking about this thing. I don't know so I end there. Yugesh is there, Sundowns is there, I don't want to talk.”
