Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says his team has turned their focus on bagging a CAF Champions League spot as they have all but conceded that the Absa Premiership title is for Kaizer Chiefs to lose.
The Brazilians currently trail Amakhosi by 10 points, although they have a game in hand, and Mosimane has argued their priority is to at least finish second to be able to return to the continental tournament.
He did leave room for any potential twists in the title race, however.
“You can’t buy the spot for the Champions League, you’ve got to play for it. The league is for Chiefs to lose – it’s in their hands now,” he told reporters.
“But we haven’t given up, we are going for it, anything is possible. We will try and get the Champions League spot first and if we can win the league we will go for it. It’s the same with the Champions League, it draws you in and spits you out. But fortunately we won the league.”
Mosimane holds great value in playing on the continent.
“This is why it’s interesting for big teams to play at this level – let’s see who you are and what you have. Play the Champions League, the Nedbank and the league and let’s see if you can do that,” he added.
