The Buccaneers cruised to a 3-0 win over the reigning champions, with a brace from Kermit Erasmus capped off by a late goal from Lehlohonolo Majoro.
What was most suspicious to Mosimane, though, came shortly after half-time when Pirates lodged an official complaint against Sundowns captain Alje Schut’s involvement in the game, claiming the defender’s playing card had expired.
That information, though, is not public knowledge by any means, leaving Mosimane in little doubt that the match was always destined to finish in Pirates’ favour.
“I don’t believe we could have won this match whichever way,” the coach said after the game.
“First, I find it very, very strange that Orlando Pirates go to Alje Schut’s card that is within our books. How do they know that? Straight to Alje’s card and no-one else?
“There must be something – I don’t know, but I don’t want to go anywhere because I know what will happen to me; I’ll get suspended.
“But I find it very strange that Orlando Pirates go straight to Alje Schut’s card and say the card what, what, what. How do they know that? How do I know what’s happening in Orlando Pirates’ book? We would have never won this game.”
