Laffor Raring To Go For Sundowns, Set To Stay At The Club?

Anthony Laffor has spoken ahead of Mamelodi Sundowns’ CAF Champions League encounter this evening.

The Liberian winger has been heavily linked with a move away from Sundowns, with Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United all believed to have shown interest in his services.

However, the player has since travelled with the Masandawana squad to Togo, where they will face AS Togo Port in the group stages of the CAF Champions League.

“Sometimes you start slow and then win the competition. We have started (slowly) this season but I think that it is about time that we put our feet on the ground and show people that we are former African champions and where we are isn’t a true reflection of us as a team. We just need to start winning games,” Laffor said on Sundowns’ official website. 

“West African teams are physical, But as a team, we don’t focus much on what other teams can do, we look at what can we do. We do our own tactics. Most of the times the games that we win is because of our ball possession. We play our own way. We listened to what our coach wants us to do. We can catch them on a break because they are strong and they’ll want to kick us. We just have to stick to our game because at the end of the day good football wins you games. 

“When I heard about the time of the kick off, I thought wow, one o’clock (Togo time) on an artificial pitch? That’s going to be hot in the dry season. But the good thing for us is that this is the rainy season. So the weather is going to be cool so it’s a good time for us to play,” he added.
