Mamelodi Sundowns have not won an Absa Premierships game since the reopening of the league games, having dropped 7 out of possible 9 points.
Mamelodi Sundowns had the following to say after a 3-2 defeat to Cape Town City: “Jah another difficult game for us, we made mistakes, the third goal was from the mistake and at that time the game was still alive, hence we went and score another goal. [It is] Difficult for us but we have to move on.”
He further said “Yeah, Kermit Erasmus is a smart player, I have to give him credit, he know how to play between the lines and drop in.”
On the issue of title race he admitted that they are worried, but they will fight for it and will not give up. But they acknowledge that this is going to be a difficult mountain to climb. They will keep fighting for the league and will also try to win the Nedbank. As a team that has accepted that they cannot win everything.
He also acknowledged that this team is different from the one prior to Corona, he gave an example of Themba Zwane, Villa [Sibusiso Vilakazi] and Gaston Sirino’s performance as they seem to have dipped as compare to before Corona Virus.
Mamelodi Sundowns have gone to the market and beefed up their squad with a new player who will only be eligible to play in the next season, players such as George Maluleke from Kaizer Chiefs, Grant Margeman from Ajax Cape Town; Lesedi Kapinga from Black Leopards, Goalkeeper Ricardo Goss from Bidvest Wits and another goalkeeper Jody February from Cape Umoya United
