Rulani Talks Title Hopes, Mentions Magic Number…

Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Rulani Mokwena appears to have calculated how many points it could take to win the title after he mentioned the magic number.

Following the Brazilians’ 2-0 win over Sekhukhune United in the DStv Premiership over the weekend, Mokwena suggested 60 points could be enough, and the fact that Sundowns are already halfway there puts them as championship favourites.

“Even if we get to 60 points and we feel that the league is wrapped up, we have the responsibilities to this club, to the management, the ownership of the club and the supporters of the club to make sure we play and win every single match,” Mokwena told the media.

He emphasised that for the Chloorkop outfit, who have won the previous four league titles, the winning mentality is a prerequisite.   

“That says then that your process is governed by principles, values and the profile of the club and not by points. We don’t look at points or how much we need, we focus on trying to make sure that we build a very strong team on the pitch,” the coach explained.

Downs currently have 30 points after 12 matches and could be run-away leaders if their form continues over the December period.
