Mamelodi Sundowns will be eager to get the defence of their PSL title under way, and they will once again be favourites to lift the trophy come May 2017. But what other things are there to look forward to? Let's take a look!
Defence Of The Title
No team has won more PSL league titles than Sundowns, and they will feel confident they can add another one to their growing collection at the end of the 2016/17 campaign. It's never easy to successfully defend a league title, but if anyone can do it, it is Sundowns.
Return Of The Pretoria CBD
While Leonardo Castro's future at the club may be in doubt, fans can remain optimistic that management will do everything they can to ensure he stays at Chloorkop. If he does, another thrilling season awaits 'Pretoria CBD'.
Finding Zungu's Replacement
With Bongani Zungu headed to Portugal, a replacement needs to be found. Any hungry player will put out competitive displays on and off the field to catch Pitso Mosimane's attention. It won't be easy finding his replacement, but it will be interesting.
Pitso Producing The Magic
Be it on the sidelines or during post-match press conferences, Pitso always gives the fans, the media and the players something to smile or laugh about. This will surely not change as he goes in search of his third league title.
Playing In Africa
Masandawana are yet to enjoy a break during the off-season as they have remained in camp to continue their preparations for the CAF Champions League. The Brazilians have been criticised for not taking the competition seriously, but this year it looks like they may be doing so. Can they go far in the tournament?
What are you looking forward to most at Sundowns in the upcoming season?
