Rivaldo: We Got Two Beautiful Goals

Mamelodi Sundowns' Rivaldo Coetzee was delighted to walk away with three points and a clean sheet as the Brazilians became the first team win 10 matches in the DStv Premiership this season.

After a frustrating opening 45 minutes, Gaston Sirino broke the deadlock before Peter Shalulile wrapped the result on Wednesday evening.

While the defending champions were on the winning side, Coetzee felt the team could have been better at certain aspects of the game.

"I'm just receiving this on behalf of the team, it was a great team effort, we knew coming to the game what they want, they always want to play in behind, on a counter," Coetzee told SuperSport TV.

"I think we dealt well with it mostly, it could have been better because they had a couple of chances, even on set-pieces we defended at our best today. But a clean sheet and three points we're hoping to improve.

"We work on the training ground on different formations with different personnel, so we know when there are certain players on the field we know which formation suits them best.

"I think today it showed again, the substitutes that came in they gave us some more energy, a different dimension and we got two beautiful goals.

"A lot of running involved, at time we could have rested on the ball, I think we rushed at some stages but in the end two goals and a clean sheet, we work again and see in the next game."
