Downs On The Right Track

Mamelodi Sundowns have been showing signs of a rejuvenated team since the start of the season, and it’s all thanks to Pitso Mosimane’s planning, together with his technical team.

Although the Brazilians could have accumulated more points in the league this season, the eight they have from the four games played to date is proof that the team is working towards achieving success in the 2013/14 campaign.

Around the same time last season, the team had already lost three times under former coach Johan Neeskens.

The team’s new signings, including the likes of Rashid Sumaila, Dove Wome, Bongani Zungu and Cuthbert Malajila have been exceptional for Mosimane’s side so far.

In addition, the club’s decision to hand Alje Schut the captain’s armband is paying dividend, as the Dutch defender has been leading the side from the back with distinction.

“We have signed a lot of young players, mostly under 24. We are building a team for the next five years. The strategy is to buy for the long term, and you can’t do that by signing players who are about to retire.

"But it is important that you mix youth with experience, and so players like Katlego Mashego and Alje Schut provide a lot of experience,” Mosimane recently said in his column on the club’s official website.
