Mamelodi Sundowns

Winger Ready For Selection, Pitso Confirms

Mamelodi Sundowns will face off with Petro de Luanda this afternoon with one of their first team players in contention to make the squad after a long injury layoff.

Anthony Laffor has been ruled out with injury since the start of the 2019/20 campaign, although, as confirmed by Head Coach Pitso Mosimane, the Liberian is finally pain free.

“Another positive thing is that Anthony Laffor is pain free and training and is now ready to be selected for this game as well as upcoming games. We are getting a few players back, we’ve also got Phakamani back now so the squad is starting to get its shape and we’re hoping that Mauricio Affonso will be back soon,” Mosimane said on Sundowns’ official website.

The Brazilians will face-off with the Angolan side in their second last group stage encounter, having had five days to prepare as they aim to remain unbeaten at the top of the log.

“To be honest it has been a little bit of a relief to have five days before the match to prepare, normally we have two and a half or three days to prepare.”

“Five days helps us to really get rest and prepare properly. We arrived, the hotel is okay, the training pitch is okay, usually we struggle with training pitches, but our advance team has done a very good job.”

“We were a little bit cold in Algeria in December, now we are here in Angola and it’s hot. 32 degrees and there is humidity, you can see in our pictures, we have to make sure they are not dehydrated. But the players have to adjust, we have no excuse,” Mosimane added.
