Mamelodi Sundowns

Jingles: We Can Go 5 In A Row, That I Can Guarantee You

Buckle up for a “photo finish” in the Absa Premiership title race, this according to coach of reigning champions Mamelodi Sundowns, Pitso Mosimane.

Although he has this week said that the championship is for log leaders Kaizer Chiefs to lose, given their nine-point gap at the summit, the former Bafana Bafana mentor also added that he expected twists and turns.

As things stand, Amakhosi are in first place, followed by Orlando Pirates, Sundowns, SuperSport United and Bidvest Wits – in that order on the table.

“You never know, Wits have to play Chiefs twice, what if there’s two draws there? We also believe we can beat Chiefs at FNB, that’s a possibility. I am not saying it’s going to happen,” Mosimane told reporters.  

“You have to keep going. We drew against Wits twice and lost to Pirates – that’s reality. It can make the league race interesting. We have a photo finish. We can go five in a row, that I can guarantee you. But let’s see, this thing can be interesting – a good finish. Maybe I can speak to Gavin Hunt because Wits took four points from me with those two draws. And with JZ (Pirates coach Josef Zinnbauer) they are on form, and (Gabadinho) Mhango is on form. We will go to FNB and see what happens there. Watch the space.”  

According to Mosimane, their target is a CAF Champions League spot, and the coach said winning all trophies on offer at the moment would be a luxury.

“If I say no to wanting four trophies, Sundowns will be disappointed with me, but what does the reality say? If you say no you are not ambitious. If you say yes, you might be a little bit arrogant and people will sharpen their swords and knives and they going to cut you,” said ‘Jingles’, as Mosimane is affectionately known.
