Sumaila Credits Sundowns Teammates

Mamelodi Sundowns defender, Rashid Sumaila, has heaped praise on his teammates, following the team’s important win over Bloemfontein Celtic on Wednesday night.

The Brazilians beat Siwelele 1-0 at the Loftus Stadium, thanks to a goal by Surprise Moriri. The result was important for Pitso Mosimane and his team, as it helped the Chloorkop outfit to move three points above Chiefs at the summit of the Absa Premiership standings.

“I think all the Sundowns players showed that we are not just a pretty playing side. When we attacked we did so in numbers and when it was time to defend everyone chipped in. Bongani (Zungu), Teko (Modise) and even Cheese (Mokoena) worked hard in defence which just goes to show that we are not just focused on playing pretty. When under attack we all pull together,” Sumaila told sundownsfc.co.za.

Chiefs lost 1-0 to Mpumalanga Black Aces in a clash played at FNB Stadium on Wednesday.

Sundowns have 55 points at the top with Chiefs on 52 points behind them, although the Amakhosi have a game in hand.
