Ajax Cape Town head coach Muhsin Ertugral believes Mamelodi Sundowns have deservedly won the Absa Premiership title.

Sundowns claimed an eighth league crown after defeating the Urban Warriors 3-1 at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The result leaves Ajax battling for their top-flight survival heading into the final round of league fixtures next month, but Ertugral admits Sundowns deserve their congratulations.
“I can only congratulate Sundowns, throughout the season for their performances and they are the deserved champions. I think we came good into the game, surprised them with the start," Ertugral told SuperSport after the game.
“In the end, their quality came through. The running between the lines, opening spaces in the defensive lines, we didn’t have the answers for it,”
Ertugral added that Ajax were no match for Sundowns' long-balls in their build-ups.
“We knew exactly how they were going to operate with the long balls in their build-up processes with (Hlompho) Kekana," the coach said.
“We were no match for that. But we had a chance with Yannick on the bar, the closest we came to coming back," he added.
“Obviously, you don’t get many chances against a team like Sundowns but that was our chance. But in the end, bang we completely fell away from the game."
