Following Mamelodi Sundowns’ recent 1-0 victory over Kaizer Chiefs in the DStv Premiership, coach Rulani Mokwena lamented his side’s performance despite bagging maximum points.

Downs made their way to the FNB Stadium on Saturday, where a solitary 20th minute strike by Neo Maema proved to be the difference in the tie.

As a result, Sundowns recorded their 12th straight win in the DStv Premiership and subsequently opened up a 17 point lead at the top of the pile.

Reflecting on the tie, Mokwena mentioned that he was not happy with his side’s performance and mentioned that he does not want a repeat of their showings against the Glamour Boys.

“I did not like the match. It’s too open,” Mokwena said after the game, as per

“That I will speak to the players about. I spoke to them at halftime about it and I will speak to them about it, but it’s a 90 minutes that I don’t like.

“We beat Kaizer Chiefs and that is a positive. I’m not complaining about the quality of the players.

“Im not complaining about the win. Congratulations to the team, we worked very hard but it’s not a 90 minutes that I think we should be repeating.”
