Why Pitso Prefers A Sundowns 11 vs 11 Clash

With the international break in full swing, Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has revealed his plan to keep the remaining players on their toes.

He will be somewhat relieved that Downs’ Bafana Bafana contingent are back already having had two friendly matches cancelled due to the unfortunately scourge of xenophobic attacks in Mzansi this week.

“I welcome the international break because I’ve got people who have to come to the party. We still have Emiliano Tade, who still needs to play. There is (Mauricio) Affonso, but he is injured and Oupa (Manyisa) has got tonsillitis and he should be back soon. Bangaly (Soumahoro) also hasn’t played,” the coach said earlier in the week.

He then also confirmed his plans before Downs play again on September 13 in a CAF Champions League clash in Seychelles.  

“We will arrange a friendly game somewhere, but at times when you do that and you don’t get a very good opponent. I like that when there’s a friendly there must be people – so that it’s proper and players play to their potential. But a 10am friendly game, it is like a training match with no effect. I would rather we play against our own because the team that we have, that is not here, is good enough to win the Premier League,” Mosimane argued.

“If you put Lyle Lakay, Bangaly, Madisha, Andile Jali, Rivaldo Coetzee, (Siphelele) Mkhulise and Phakamani Mahlambi, it’s a team strong enough to survive in the Premier League. And when we play against each other it’s more effective – a nice big fight.”
