Mamelodi Sundowns team captain, Hlompho Kekana admitted that the team will be affected by the absence of the fans in the stadium.
Sundowns will return to domestic action this weekend when they face off with Bidvest Wits at the Orlando Stadium in the semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup competition.
All the remaining matches of the 2019/20 campaign will be played behind closed doors and the Brazilians will be utilising the Dobsonville Stadium as their ‘home away from home’ venue for the rest of the season.
However, it is going to take some getting used to for Sundowns, as the Chloorkop-based club has seen an increasing number of fan attendance at their stadiums over the past few seasons.
“It is going to be difficult and we won’t cope with playing without the fans. (But) we are going to represent the fans very well as their absence will be felt and we must make sure that every game we play, we play for the supporters so that they can feel our presence,” Kekana said on Sundowns’ official website.
After their Nedbank Cup clash on Saturday, August 08, Sundowns will return to Absa Premiership action with an exciting fixture against Orlando Pirates next Tuesday.
