Having broken so many hearts on Sunday afternoon in Mbombela, Maritzburg United’s man of the moment Judas Moseamedi has no sympathy for the dejected Kaizer Chiefs supporters.
It will take a bit of time for the Amakhosi faithful to forget Mosiamedi’s 2 goals during the Telkom Knockout semifinal match that ruined their chances of getting closer to a first trophy since 2015.
With over 36 000 tickets sold for the match, the stadium was visibly full of the Chiefs supporters, but the 25-year-old insists Chiefs’ pain has nothing to do with them.
“No, we came here to do our job whether they are disappointed it has nothing to do with us because we came here to do our job,” said Moseamedi.
“As long as we won and our things are going well, that they are disappointed or not doesn’t concern us.”
Moseamedi also admits that he was a culprit of missing clear-cut opportunities that could have sealed the match earlier.
“Yeah I should have scored a lot of goals. It’s just that we were not composed inside the box that’s why you saw that we missed a lot of scoring opportunities. That’s why our coach (Eric Tinkler) was angry at halftime with the fact that we are not relaxed in the 18 area. But we could have won that game with a bigger margin.”
The Team of Choice will face SuperSport United next in an Absa Premiership clash set for Wednesday at Harry Gwala Stadium at 19:30.
“If you look at our league performances we have been doing well because we have not been losing games that’s why we came into the cup match so prepared and to ensure that we don’t lose the winning streak.
“So, we want to carry on winning games that includes our league match on Wednesday,” added the Bolobedu-born, Limpopo, player.
Before the brace against Chiefs, Mosiamedi’s only other goal of the season came during the 2-2 draw against Bloemfontein Celtic earlier this month.
