Baroka FC goalkeeper – Ayanda Dlamini has responded in no appropriate terms to Pitso Mosimane for accusing him of using delaying tactics in their 1-0 win over Mamelodi Sundowns on Sunday.
Ananias Gebhart’s 20th minute strike was all, but enough to secure the maximum three points for Baroka FC.
Meanwhile, head coach of the Brazilians [Pitso] could not hide his frustrations in his post match interview pointing accusing fingers at Dlamini for managing the game with delaying tactics.
“This one was a different one. They’ve got Elvis Chipezeze who was a master of sitting, of killing the game. This one I don’t know his name, I think Baroka they breed them hey,” Mosimane said.
“They breed these ones who don’t allow the play to go. But it’s okay they have to do what they have to do to survive. It’s okay.”
But in his interview with Kickoff, Ayanda Dlamini advised Pitso Mosimane to hold his tears:
“There’s nothing like that my brother, he shouldn’t cry, he shouldn’t cry too much,” Dlamini said.
“As for me, I wouldn’t cry that much because we needed this win. It’s bad in the relegation zone my brother. If you don’t fight your own battles, no one will. You should do it for yourself.
“It’s not like we were wasting time, it’s because it happened in that moment where I was was really injured. Even the referee could see that this thing is serious, it’s not like we were wasting time.
“I went to the game already injured. I got injured on Tuesday. So I had to monitor it up until the game was finished. I had a groin injury. If you take a look at the whole first half, I didn’t kick any ball. It’s not about tricks my brother.”
The Baroka FC goalkeeper further reiterated that the match against Sundowns last Sunday is his best game since he turned professional.
“Ja this is my best game my brother. I was enjoying it because everything was free-flowing,” he says.
