Mphahlele Named Man Of The Match

Mamelodi Sundowns defender Ramahlwe Mphahlele was named Man of the Match after a sturdy performance in their 0-0 draw with Kaizer Chiefs on Tuesday night.

Mphahlele, who returned to the club after a loan spell at Tuks, helped the Brazilians snuff out the Chiefs counter-attacks on the night as they claimed a point in their opening game of 2013.

"Let me thank my teammates, they made it much easier for me. I know it's my first game for Sundowns, as you know I came from the university. So I'm just trying to slot myself in, I'm trying to settle down first and then I can do things," he said after the game.

"The coach told me first thing, I am a defender, and then I can attack. So I did my job as a defender, and the rest just came.

"We have been planning for Chiefs and preparing for the league. There is only 13 games left now, and the games are coming thick and fast.

"We just told ourselves, let's go there, fight - let's help one another. The closing down, it's something that is constructed -we practiced it in pre-season and it worked for us today."

The player seemed to suffer a knock late in the game, and confirmed that he will need to check it out.

"I heard a sound, I think I landed awkwardly. So I'll just check with the medical team and we'll see what's going to happen," he added.
