Sundowns' league title defence in their own hands

Pitso Mosimane has always alluded to the fact that his side- Mamelodi Sundowns are slow starters- but strongest finishers in the league. But The Brazilians has started this campaign on a high note.

With the depature of a host of key players in recent years- and not to mention the exit of Rhulani Mokoena who went on to attain the assistant coach role at Orlando Pirates. Sundowns should have cracked on from there- instead they've started to show more intent and innovation on attack. Although Sundowns attackers have squandered some clear cut chances- one would forgive them as they try to find new combinations.

It's worth bearing all these in mind when assesing the current squad. Losing the core of his squad meant that Pitso has to rebuild a new team altogether. This is but the first stage of the evolution. Sundowns is playing good football- with a brand that can be best described as total football. Currently sitting third on the log without losing a single game after eleven games- the future is looking bright for the Chloorkop based outfit. Their hopes of defending the league title are now getting very high and someway in their own hands.
