Mosimane Opens Up About Sundowns' 'Legacy'

Mamelodi Sundowns Coach Pitso Mosimane Speaks Of Club's CAF Champions League 'Legacy'

By Ryan Gordon - May 07, 2018 09:18 AM
Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane believes CAF Champions League football is part of the club's "legacy", and says the team have to deal with the pressure that comes with it.
 
While the Brazilians' 15 PSL rivals are preparing for the final league game of the campaign next weekend followed by a hard-earned break, Downs will again be working through the holiday period as they contest continental football.
 
The Brazilians kicked off their Group C campaign on Saturday with a 1-1 draw against holders Wydad Casablanca, the team that dethroned Downs last term after knocking the PSL giants out at the quarter-finals.
 
 
Mosimane's men are next in action on Saturday for a victory lap in the league as they close out the domestic campaign against Bloemfontein Celtic, before taking on LaLiga giants Barcelona in a club friendly and returning to CAF football against Horoya AC.
 
When asked about the pressures that come with contesting the continent's biggest club cup competition year in and year out, while their domestic rivals are awarded lengthy resting periods, Mosimane told SuperSport TV: "Every year we are the last ones to finish, every year we are the first ones to start.
 
"It's part of it, it's part of our legacy. If you want to be the top team in Africa, this is it.
 
"They [Wydad Casablanca] do the same, so there's no complaint, it's this level.
 
"Good game, we tried."
