Downs Star On ‘Breaking The Ice’ At Wydad

Anele Ngcongca shares his Mamelodi Sundowns coach’s sentiments about needing to end their losing streak against Wydad Casablanca, who enjoy the support of their ultra-fans, giving them an intimidating atmosphere against visiting teams. 

The South African outfit, CAF Champions League winners in 2016, are yet to beat the Moroccan side in their own backyard. But defender Ngcongca says they want to keep trying.

“It’s a game we have been struggling to win,” he said ahead of tomorrow night’s Group C clash at the Athletic Complex in Casablanca.

“So it was important that we start with a win, especially because we were playing at home (against Petro de Luanda last weekend). In the Champions League, you must win your home games – and we tried to win it by a big scoreline.”

Ngcongca gave the impressing feeling that in the dressing room, was a team ready to put a stop to Wydad’s dominance over them. 

“We have faced Wydad so many times in this competition and in their backyard they are a stubborn team. Of course they have the help of their supporters,” he said. 

“As a player these are the games you look forward to. The atmosphere is marvellous, so it’s great to play in front of so many people. Hopefully this time we can finally get a win. When we analysed their games, I think they have changed how they are playing – they are more direct now. We want to break that ice now.”
