Mamelodi sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane was not pleased with the officiating during his side’s clash against Chippa United on Sunday afternoon.

Sundowns and Chippa played to a goalless draw in their MTN8 semi-final first leg clash at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

The former Bafana Bafana coach was not pleased with the number of yellow cards shown to his players considering the gruelling fixture schedule that await them.

“The resources, the energy we spent on this game and with so many yellow cards. It’s unbelievable when you have games back-to-back,” Mosimane told the media after the game.

“I don’t want to talk about that (PSL’s refusal to postpone fixtures), you guys in the media must ask them why they do that. We are drivers of our destiny. We are still okay, we came here, we didn’t lose. I still believe we can do something.”
