Pitso: Downs Have To Get 10 Titles And Another Star

Pitso: Downs Have To Get 10 Titles And Another Star

By Soccer Laduma - May 13, 2018 12:12 PM

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane says the club must get to 10 Absa Premiership titles and add another CAF Champions League title to their trophy cabinet.

Sundowns ended the Absa Premiership season with a goalless draw against Bloemfontein Celtic on Saturday evening.

“Sundowns has to go to ten titles and put a second star over the badge. We have been consistent for five years, we’re blessed, we’re supported, we have to thank the board, the President Patrice Motsepe and his family for supporting us," Mosimane told SuperSport after the game

“It has not been easy, we labored, we earned it. We were forever on the pitch, every three days on the pitch it doesn’t come any bigger than this.  We’re happy.

“I must also thank my family for supporting me, my wife and also the players’ families for being patient with us.”

Mosimane says this league title is more memorable because of the heavy programme they were under in clinching it.

“The resilience from the boys, the hard work fighting to win the league with a heavy programme [is what stands out],” he added.

“It was not easy, Pirates were chasing us I think they took the best out of us, but 60 points is not bad [although] we could’ve done better.”

@Tycoon you're full of excuses maan. In 5 consecutive seasons we were finishing above either of these well marketed Soweto brands. It's no longer about Chiefs and Pirates

@Smoothery Pirates will always take pride to the fact that,since the PSL inception they remain the only team to have won back to back trebles.As Sundowns we need to emualate Pirates by going for a sweepstake,by doing so ,we will be nullifying their achievements.

For the benefit of those who are new to SA Football we ought to provide clarity here. In the New Era under the NSL ie From 1996/97 to date (PSL era) no team has dominated a season to collect all four trophies on offer (clean sweep). Therefore, no one should claim that their teams achievement is a milestone that other teams have to match but teams can set their own individual targets and praise their achievements without fear nor favor. Winning their 8th PSL Tittle for Sundowns is a milestone that no other has matched, so is qualification for Champions League in 5 consecutive seasons, so is Winning the Champions League and Super Cup. There’s absolutely no need for treble aspirants to impose that as a barometer to test Downs’ Success. If Rats believe that the ultimate victory is winning the treble twice and staying for 5+ maiden Seasons without silverware let that be their journey and keep it to themselves. This article is about Pitso’ s ambition for his team and for MaSandawana nation. Don’t come here your jajarak impositions here we are running different races, el facto.....
