Pitso Mosimane has reminded everyone that the Absa Premiership trophy is in Mamelodi Sundowns’ cabinet and will only be decided on in May.
Sundowns ensured a valuable 1-0 win over Stellenbosch FC last night to reduce Kaizer Chiefs’ log lead to four points - including a game in hand.
With nine and eight games left for Sundowns and Chiefs respectively, both teams still have to battle top five opponents such as Bidvest Wits and Orlando Pirates in potentially title-deciding games.
“The league is decided in May, we should humble ourselves and keep calm and keep (our) feet on the ground, the league is decided in May, we are holding on to the trophy, we don’t want it out of the cabinet, we still seeing it, we still love it so we can’t release it,” Mosimane told the media via Soccer Laduma.
“So we still fine to protect it but what can you do, a game in hand doesn’t mean nothing. We had two games in hand, at least we got rid of one – until we got rid of the game in hand and you have won it then you can start looking at the table differently,” Pitso added.
Sundowns take on Highlands Park in a Nedbank Cup last eight game this weekend before welcoming Pirates to Pretoria next Tuesday 17 March.
