Anthony Laffor Discusses Champions League Clash And Injuries

By Soccer Laduma - Jun 19, 2017 12:16 PM

Mamelodi Sundowns’ Anthony Laffor maintains that the Brazilians are looking for nothing less than a win against the Tunisians on Wednesday, as to avoid being knocked out in the early stages of the competition. 

Sundowns will lock horns with Esperance Tunis on Wednesday, June 21, in a group encounter of the CAF Champions League.

The Brazilians are currently third placed in group C, after securing just four points out of three fixtures played.

A win for Masandawana on Wednesday will give the team a higher chance of ending in the top two of the group standings, progressing further in the competition.

Speaking to Sundowns’ official website, Laffor, who watched from the stands in the Brazilians’ previous Champions League encounter, is confident that his side will be able to secure the much-needed win on Wednesday.

“Look, we are here to win. We have to win to get to the summit of our log. We are not here to draw,” Laffor told Sundowns’ official website.

“I watched our game against them in Atteridgeville. They are technically well structured, but we are confident that we can break through. This was clear from the number of chances we had, so we hope that on Wednesday we will use the opportunities.

 
“We have a big enough squad and we certainly do not want to be knocked out so early in the campaign. In football, there are bound to be injuries, so this should not be an excuse. For now, our focus is on Wednesday’s game and then we will look at the next game,” he added.
