“After my return from injury, I was overweight and unfit. Pitso Mosimane didn’t play me for that,” Mahmoud told Sada El-Balad – News.

“He asked us to come back from our holidays in good shape. But he didn’t provide us with any fitness plan, he just believed that we could work out on our own.

“I was not in good form after returning from injury, so I was not selected for the Club World Cup squad.”

“Very disappointed, this is the first time I’ve complained about an official since I entered the coaching business,” Vilakazi told SuperSport TV.

“The referee made an inadvertent mistake and (Ntsako) Makhubela was fouled leading to a goal, after which I spoke to him personally. He even accepted that.

“It’s unfortunate because the Orlando Buccaneers have to redeem themselves, but not at our expense. We’re here to compete, we’re here to fight, and that’s our job.

“So other people can’t game our job. If the Pirates have to win, they’ll win the game if they deserve it.

“We fought and we played very strong in the second half. We scored the equalizer and we looked like a team (winners) who were going to score goals. But incidents like that I don’t think are acceptable!”
