Pitso urges Sundowns fans to support Pirates against Chiefs

We are likely to see thousands of Mamelodi Sundowns fans mixing with Orlando Pirates come Saturday afternoon’s Soweto Derby.

Sundowns sit four points behind Absa Premiership leaders Kaizer Chiefs, meaning a win for Pirates will do Kabo Yellow a big favour.

Speaking ahead of leaving for Cairo to face Al Ahly in a CAF Champions League quarter-final, coach Mosimane has left a daring note.

"Obviously if you want the league to be exciting, you don't wish them [Kaizer Chiefs] to win on Saturday," Mosimane said via Kick Off.

The former Bafana Bafana coach explained his views by reminding the public that Amakhosi supporters had stood in support of Sundowns’ recent opponents.

"When we played [Bloemfontein] Celtic, did you see the Chiefs fans at Loftus? They came in numbers [to support Celtic]. When we played Chippa [United], they came in big numbers.

"Probably Masandawana must go and join the Buccaneers there [at Soccer City],” concluded the man known as “Jingles.”

Meanwhile, Sundowns' clash with Ahly will kick off at 18:00 on the same day.
