Thapelo Morena: Mamelodi Sundowns Have Advantage... And Must Use It

By Ryan Gordon - Jul 23, 2018 07:16 AM
Thapelo Morena believes Mamelodi Sundowns' on-going involvement in the CAF Champions League means they can hit the ground running in the PSL next season.
The Brazilians' continental campaign took a big blow last week as they slumped to a 1-0 loss away to AS Togo-Port to leave the South African juggernauts bottom of Group C with two points from their opening three matches. 
Sundowns will contest the reverse fixture against the Togolese outfit on Friday before the Absa Premiership campaign kicks off the following weekend, and Morena believes with the squad already at match fitness, they are capable of a strong start to the domestic league.
"It's good because when the league starts we're already in our Week 3 when they (PSL opposition) are starting their first week," Morena said during a media gathering.
"(CAF) is a good competition, it's good games (to play) heading towards the league because we'll have that momentum that we need."
When asked about his personal ambitions in the new campaign, Morena added: "I just want to deliver more than I did last season. I want to do my best and I'm hoping to get another gold medal."
Do you think Sundowns' CAF involvement will be a positive or negative in their Absa Premiership season?

All I know is that without Tau and Billiat you are nothing. You can't rely on lucky goals from Brookies knees.
