Maritzburg United coach Eric Tinkler believes it is unfair that he is expected to answer questions related to the Telkom Knockout final after losing to Mamelodi Sundowns.

United striker Judas Moseamedi saw his goal disallowed as the linesman judged the lanky forward to be offside, Tinkler refused to answer questions about the goal that his striker scored against newly-crowned Telkom Knockout champions.

United looked set to lift the trophy when they scored the opening goal but saw Sundowns comeback to score two goals to claim the trophy.

“No comment, you shouldn’t be asking me this question really,” said Tinkler after his side lost to Sundowns in the Telkom Knockout final in Durban on Saturday evening.

“So ja, move on to the next one please. I should never be doing interviews ten minutes after the game.

“You know emotions are high, that’s a question you shouldn’t be asking me.”
