Mabunda: It’s Easy For Anybody To Go To The Top
Tiyani Mabunda On Mamelodi Sundowns' Aim To Stay Focused On Winning The League Title
Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder, Tiyani Mabunda has spoken of the Brazilians’ ambitions to go all the way and clinch the Absa Premiership League title.
Mabunda picked up the Absa Premiership Goal of the Month award for December after his outstanding strike in the Brazilians' 4-1 win over Bloemfontein Celtic.
Speaking to the Sundowns official website, Mabunda highlighted that it is easy for a team to get to the top of the league standings, saying that Masandawana can’t afford to make the same mistakes that they did last season.
“It’s easy for anybody to go to the top. The difficult part is staying there. We know that last season we made a couple of mistakes that cost us the league,” Mabunda said.
“This year we are in a similar position. But we have told ourselves that we can’t afford to make the same mistakes we made last year. We know that in the remaining games we have a process as a team of how we can win the league and we are focusing on that process more than the outcome.
“If we do the right things and the process goes according to plan, then the rest will follow. Winning the league will take care of itself. We just need to focus on the plans that we have as a team. I have learned that the moment the pressure comes from outside, that’s when people lose it.
“But if the pressure from within is greater than the pressure from outside, then everything falls into place. I believe that we are on the right track. We have a healthy lead between us and the other teams. We know that it’s not going to be easy but we have a strong team that can push us until the end,” he added.
