Can Sundowns Win The Title For Three Years In A Row?

Mamelodi Sundowns defender, Wayne Arendse thinks that the Brazilians are more than capable of going all the way to win a third title in a row.

Sundowns were crowned back-to-back Absa Premiership champions last season, all this while competing in the CAF Champions League and this season, it’s no different.

“Yes, it’s possible. We are in the Champions League because we are up there every season competing for the domestic league title. If we don’t win, we come second. We want to win it a third straight and I feel we are on the right track,” Arendse said in an exclusive interview with Soccer Laduma this week.

Sundowns, who won the Absa Premiership nine times, are currently third on the log, with two games in hand and just five points behind Kaizer Chiefs at the top of the league standings.

“We set ourselves goals and so far so good. It’s obviously going to be difficult because Chiefs is doing well, (Bidvest) Wits is doing well and (Orlando) Pirates will also still be there. It’s going to go down to the wire again, hopefully not. There’s a lot of good teams, we just need to do what we have been doing and manage ourselves well as players. We’ve been there before, so I think we will be okay. We will go for a third one,” Arendse added.
