Pitso: Ambition Comes At A Cost

Pitso Mosimane Says Mamelodi Sundowns' Ambitions Come At A Big Cost To Players And Staff

By Soccer Laduma - May 14, 2018 08:45 AM
Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says if you want to be involved in the club, you need to be prepared to put in the hours as they prepare to host Spanish footballing titans, Barcelona on Wednesday.
Saturday signalled the close of the 2017/18 Absa Premiership season which, for the majority of the top-flight clubs, meant well-earned breaks for the players and coaching staff after a gruelling campaign.
This is not the case for Sundowns, though, as the newly-crowned league champions have only three days rest before they take on LaLiga giants, Barca in an international club friendly on Wednesday, while their CAF Champions League campaign has only just begun, with their second Group C fixture schedule for May 22, against group leaders Horoya AC.
Mosimane knows the challenges that come with a seemingly never-ending season can push many to the brink but says that is something that needs to be accepted when you're part of the setup at the Tshwane giants.
When asked about their continued involvement at the highest level when the rest of the league are on break, Mosimane told SuperSport: "Ja, it's not easy, it's tough, we're tired, it doesn't stop at Sundowns.
"Because we won the league, it stops? It doesn't stop. There's Barca, and you tell me how different that [game] can be, and then after Barca, it's the second game of the Champions League.
"Forever on the road, forever playing, heavy games, strong games, no easy games for us, but it's the way it is. We want to be there. We are an ambitious team, so that's what you get when you are too ambitious."
