Masinga: Wits Took Advantage Of Sundowns
Phil Masinga Bemoans Timing Of Sundowns' Finals
Mamelodi Sundowns legend, Phil Masinga has said that Bidvest Wits took advantage of his former team’s split focus between the MTN8 and CAF Champions League finals.
Sundowns lost 3-0 to Bidvest Wits in the MTN8 final on Saturday at the Mbombela Stadium, with only two weeks to spare before they play Zamalek in the CAF Champions League final. Masinga believes that the Brazilians were at a disadvantage as a result of this.
“At times it’s not good to be in two finals at the same time, because it becomes difficult to focus on both finals,” he told the Siya crew. “That's why I think Sundowns had two minds and Wits took advantage of that.”
Masinga did have something positive to add, however, saying that his former team now have time to rest and regroup, with the upcoming international break providing respite.
“They have time to rest and focus on the Champions League final,” the Bafana Bafana legend concluded.
