Mamelodi Sundowns beat Maritzburg United 2-1 in the Telkom Knockout Cup final at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The Brazilians lifted the trophy in controversial circumstances as United's Judas Moseamedi was denied a late equaliser which was called offside.
Initial television replays were inconclusive, but fans on social media are split on the decision. Sundowns fans are drawing their digital lines to point out the Maritzburg player was offside after all.
However, coach Pitso Mosimane had already commented that his team benefitted from poor refereeing in the final, the same mentor who complained about decisions awarded to Kaizer Chiefs earlier in the PSL season.

Whatever happened, Sundowns lifted the trophy and you can see those images right here too.
Many supporters know Mauricio Affonso is due all the credit after his brace outscored Moseamedi's single strike.
"I benefited and I have no shame! Some people have been getting all these benefits - I will get them, I want them five games in a row, I've got no shame on that. It is the way it is in the Premier League " - the legendary Pitso Mosimane!!! What a legend 😂😂😂😂— Mninawa Ntloko (@ntlokom) December 14, 2019

Musa was brought down in the 1st half and I believe it was a penalty. Here Moseamedi looks to be ahead, close call! pic.twitter.com/2MmosVa3Sv— Rodrygo (@SebothomaSolo) December 14, 2019
