Ertugral On Whether Sundowns Will ‘Slip Up’ Against Maritzburg
Muhsin Ertugral Was Questioned About Mamelodi Sundowns Facing Maritzburg United
Ajax Cape Town head coach, Muhsin Ertugral will be keeping a close eye on Mamelodi Sundowns this evening as he prepares his troops to face the Brazilians this weekend.
The Urban Warriors will be eager to clinch at least four points out of their remaining two encounters, in order to comfortably get themselves out of the relegation zone.
Following Ajax’s win over Baroka last night, Ertugral was asked whether he thinks following the Brazilians' Nedbank Cup defeat to the same side, Sundowns could slip up tonight against Maritzburg United in the Absa Premiership before facing the Cape Town-based side.
“They won't, this team is too good (in) my opinion, by far, not only that, it is the individual part. They will be fresh tomorrow night and they will be fresh against us,” Ertugral said.
“The way they are playing they have unbelievable strengths and how much can you stop their strengths, but I have great respect for what they have achieved on that side I must say, it is not easy, a lot of credit needs to go (to) that team. Winning the Champions League is something unique and winning leagues and cups and growing players to certain levels is unbelievable, playing a team that is very confident,” he added.
Sundowns will face off with the Team of Choice this evening, where a win for them will take them just inches close to lifting the Absa Premiership trophy.
