Revealed – ‘We Do Breathalyser Tests At Sundowns’

Mamelodi Sundowns conduct breathalyser tests on their players to detect alcohol intake, coach Pitso Mosimane has revealed.

He said this was one way the club was keeping their galaxy of stars on the straight and narrow and helping them with their lifestyle choices. 

However, the club has – to date – not officially confirmed showing any one of their players the door for alcohol abuse.

“It is very difficult to deal with discipline. I have told our guys that I think we should not camp anymore – let the players go home and meet in the morning for breakfast. We do breathalyser tests at Sundowns,” Mosimane told journalists.

“I am not going to say anything more. But if we find something you are in trouble. Your social life has to work for Sundowns because of the number of games, the travelling and the expectations. We have a good group, a lot of our players were captains at their previous clubs. It’s either you fit in or the system rejects you.”

Mosimane did not jump to try and protect his players when asked if all of them are well-behaved and without any flaws.  

“I won’t pretend we have a group of monks,” he said.

“But we have a quiet dressing room. The system has kicked out a lot of noisy players in the past, and I won’t mention names. If you want to fight the system you have to be top of your game on the pitch. It is not easy at Sundowns. We don’t have a lot of trouble makers. I think next season we won’t camp, but I still have to get everyone to buy into that because I think we are at that level.”
