Mamelodi Sundowns star Ramahlwe Mphahlele has said that the Brazilians are not ready to surrender their Absa Premiership trophy just yet, and although it will be tough task, Downs will remain optimistic.
That’s a bold statement to say the least, as it would take a serious meltdown from Chiefs if they are to be knocked off the number one spot in the league.
Also, let’s not forget about the ground lost following our agonising 1-0 loss to Bidvest Wits in the league this week, leaving us 10 points behind Amakhosi.
In this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma, Rama said that anything can happen - as they faced a similar task in their last campaign.
“Last season it was more or less the same situation and we went on to win the trophy. We just have to concentrate on our games and win them. We shouldn’t be thinking about Chiefs or any other team because that will disturb us. Remember, anything is possible in football,” Rama said.
As a fan, this does put us at ease somewhat, as we know the players have not given up hope, even after stumbling slightly.
Do you agree with Rama’s sentiments?
