Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane was not happy after Baroka goalkeeper Elvis Chipezeze received the Man of the match award for his performances in a goalless draw on Tuesday.
The Zimbabwe international made some crucial saves which kept his side in the game but consumed some time on the ground to absorb the pressure.
Mosimane alleges that Chipezeze’s actions, which he described as unsportsmanlike, should not have earned him the honour.
“We should congratulate Chipezeze for being the Man of the match for wasting time,” he said during a post-match interview with SuperSport TV.
“He is a good goalkeeper, and we have no doubt about it. He made brilliant saves, but you still give him the award when he is on the floor all the time.
“South African football needs to look at certain things differently. I have said this (before) and I know I’m right,” Pisto fumed.
When asked if he wants to know who selects the Man of the match, the gaffer said: “I know who chooses the man of the match, but I’m wondering how do you give the award to a player who does things like this.”
This is not the first time Mosimane has blasted the selectors. In August, he questioned why Khama Billiat was given the award when the Kaizer Chiefs winger, according to him, didn’t contribute much.
