Mamelodi Sundowns

Downs' Plan Ahead Of Cup Final

Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi feels they have been around long enough not to let next week's MTN8 final disturb their focus in the DStv Premiership and CAF Champions League.

Sundowns, who are set to take on Cape Town City in the final on October 30 at Moses Mabhida Stadium, have a league match against Golden Arrows this evening and they will then host DRC outfit Maniema Union in the Champions League on Sunday. 

"The final is a very important match for us, but I think we have a matured team to understand that we have to take each game as it comes. That's why it's also important to refresh the team from the team that played in Congo, so that we are safe from fatigue. And the team that we play also has to show that they deserve to play ahead of those who have been playing all along," Mngqithi told the Sundowns media department.

"So, it's a two way scenario. We are looking for a result against Arrows and we will put in a strong team against them, knowing very well that we have a Champions League match over the weekend, before we can even talk about the final."
