Mosimane warns Wits’ next opponents


Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane has sent out a warning to all the Absa Premiership teams that still have to face Bidvest Wits in the league.

This comes after Wits put up a brave fight against Sundowns over the weekend in the Nedbank Cup semifinal at Orlando Stadium.

‘The Students’ suffered a 3-2 defeat with Sundowns going through to the final, where they will play Bloemfontein Celtic who comfortably beat Baroka FC 3-0 in the first semifinal in Soweto.

“Bidvest Wits, a very good team, they don’t want to die, I mean we had to take three leads to win the match, they just came back,” said Mosimane.

“This is not a team that is being sold, this is not a team that you say their future is no longer there at Wits. It is unbelievable, they are a good team with a good coach Gavin [Hunt], he is a fighter, an incredible coach, I don’t think he will struggle to get a club.

“This is a warning to everybody to say if you are going to play Wits be very careful, don’t think about Tshakhuma [Tsha Madzivhandila] and all those things, they are alive and kicking, the heartbeat is still there, they fight,” concluded Mosimane.

Sundowns will now turn their attention to Absa Premiership as tackle Orlando Pirates on Tuesday night at their new home for the remainder of the season, Dobsonville Stadium while Wits will come up against log leaders Kaizer Chiefs on Wednesday evening at Orlando Pirates.

Both encounters are scheduled to kick off at 18:00 in the Gauteng Biological Safa Environment (BSE) amid the Coronavirus pandemic
