Sundowns Coach On League Title: We Will Be Naïve To Think That It Is The End Of The Road

Mamelodi Sundowns assistant coach, Manqoba Mngqithi says that it would be naïve of his side to think that it is the end of the road in the challenge for the league title, despite their current five-point advantage.

Sundowns are currently five points clear at the top of the league standings after claiming a victory over Cape Town City at the Athlone Stadium on Friday.

However, there are still 10 more Absa Premiership fixtures to be played before the league title is decided and Sundowns’ assistant coach, Mngqithi says that the Brazilians will still be facing tough competition along the road.

“It is obviously a good result, we wanted it but we will be naïve to think that this is the end of the road. The teams that we are competing with are still coming very hard on us and if you were to ask (at) the beginning of the season – will Cape Town City be challenging for the league? - Nobody would have said that so we can’t be foolish in 20 matches,” Mngqithi explained.

“We are still left with 10 and if you count the number of points in 10 matches, that’s probably 30 points and anything can still happen and the same teams that could have been a threat can still come out stronger. 

“You see Wits is coming up, Pirates is coming up and Chiefs are stronger, so those are our competitors but, the good thing that in 10 matches, they must play three matches in order to come close to us,” he added.
