Mamelodi Sundowns

Pitso: Don’t Undermine The PSL

Pitso Mosimane says Mamelodi Sundowns’ comfortable 3-0 win over Angolan side Petro de Luanda at the weekend in the CAF Champions League was a reminder of just how tough the local Premier Soccer League can be. 

The Brazilians went to the top of Group C in the continental competition having won their game while Wydad Casablanca and USM Alger played to a stalemate.

Given how comfortable the win was for Downs, the coach was asked whether this was another indicator that the PSL was stronger than most leagues on the continent. 

“Don’t undermine the PSL, we played AmaZulu (midweek) and we did not have this free flowing game,” was Mosimane’s reply. 

“The PSL is a bit stronger, especially in terms of defensive organisations of the teams. We sweat to go through, hence there are not too many goals. PSL is stronger than the Angola league, I will agree to that. I think we are in the top three (in Africa). The Tunisian league is strong, Morocco and Egypt is strong. You don’t want to take Algeria for granted also. If you go to DRC there’s AS Vita and TP Mazembe and they are having their own party there.”

Downs will face Wydad on Saturday night for their second group game, this time playing away from home, where they are still yet to register a win against the Moroccan side.
