Speaking to Soccer Laduma, the defender says PSL opponents double their efforts when they play against Sundowns, which is making it difficult for them in their league title-defence of the current campaign.

“What makes it difficult isthat every team that plays againstSundowns wants to prove a point.They come better prepared thanwhen they play against other teams. That’s the problem. But we don’tthink about the other teams andtheir plans for us. We think aboutus and how we can win games,” said Mphahlele.

The Limpopo-born player doesn’t believe that the players are put under unnecessary pressure by the monetary incentives they get at Sundowns.

“I don’t think it’s about money.In a game of football there will alwaysbe pressure. Winning doesn’tcome easy and at times that putspressure on players and the team asa whole, but we are used to that,” added Mphahlele.

Mphahlele understands the importance of having to guard against feeling the pressure in the last few games of the season.

“By just being ourselves andplaying according to what thecoaches instruct us to do. We can’tthink about what people say orthink about us. Then we will losefocus. We just focus on the gameand do our job on the field of play,” explained Mphahlele.
