This comes after Mosimane told a media conference that he let Kaizer Chiefs win to save their coach Steve Komphela from the axe.

Before the match Sundowns fans carried a placard with the words “Farewell Komphela” suggesting that he would be fired after their team beat Chiefs.

“I’m happy to lose to Steve Komphela, he deserves a break, a reliever, he is my brother. Black coaches are very few.
