Onyango: We Did Not Focus On Bucs' Final Game

Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Denis Onyango insists they paid no attention to Orlando Pirates' clash with Polokwane City as their fate was in their own hands.

The Brazilians clinched a ninth league title after recording a 1-0 win over Free State Stars on the final day of the season.

"Well done to the guys," Onyango told SuperSport after the game.
 
"It's been a very tough season for me and the team because we had so many games. But I had to bring my A-game because we knew we were playing a very strong team fighting for their lives. I knew we could score a goal and of course keeping a clean sheet would be much better for a team that has been fighting for me all season.
 
"We knew it was going to be very tough. Coming to Goble park is never easy even though we've been winning here for the last few years. They were fighting relegation and we were fighting for the league. All we had to do was win our game and leave the rest to the PSL.
 
When asked if his team were keeping their eye on the Orlando Pirates-Polokwane City game, the Ugandan said they were wholly focused on the task at hand.
 
"No, we were focusing on our game. We knew a win would give us the title. Even if they won 10-0 we knew just one goal would be enough for us to win the title. And that's what we did."
