Mamelodi Sundowns coach, Manqoba Mngqithi spoke on the positive result the Brazilians picked up in Cape Town and also singled out a specific player from the Citizens who he thinks is one of the most underrated players in Mzansi’s top-flight.
Sundowns secured a 2-0 win over City at the Cape Town Stadium on Wednesday evening, with Mngqithi admitting that it is always troublesome to come up against the Mother City-based side.
”One is really encouraged with the result, I think we last won here in 2018, if I am not mistaken. They have always been a troublesome team against us and one is excited. It is always encouraging to see two teams playing offensive football, not one sitting back and not wanting to initiate anything, that was the main encouraging thing for me,” he said.
The coach then went on to praise Surprise Ralani for being one of the most influential players in the league.
“They have many intelligent players, I can’t stop mentioning Ralani, he is one of the most underrated players in the league yet the most influential. This is one team that plays good football.
“The game was of great quality in terms of the opportunities created but I was not pleased with the fact that we could not dictate terms by keeping possession. I thought had we converted the chances we created in the first half, we could have gone to half time with a margin of four goals."
