Downs Fans Speak: We Are Out Of CAF, Now We Want PSL!

With Mamelodi Sundowns eliminated from the CAF Champions League, their fans have issued a stern warning to the rest of the teams in the Absa Premiership, claiming that they will be fighting for what is rightfully theirs.

Downs’ elimination from Africa’s elite competition is both a god and a bad thing for Masandawana.

It is bad because they cannot replicate their marvellous 2016 campaign, which saw them dominate Africa and lift the CAF Champions League.

However, it is also a good thing, as Pitso Mosimane and his men can now shift their focus to the domestic scene where they are still in contention for two trophies.

They currently trail log leaders Kaizer Chiefs by seven points, although they do have two games in hand. One of the matches taking place on Tuesday as they head to the Mother City, where they take on Stellenbosch FC.

Downs also have the tricky Nedbank Cup quarterfinal task in the form of Highlands Park at the Makhulong Stadium on the weekend.

SL Supporters have had their say on what they think the rest of the season has in store for the men from Chloorkop. Check it out.

“April is around the corner. Some Chiefs fans have been sounding up war drums, baying for Sundowns’ blood. Well, Sundowns is now free from CAF Champions League and are fully focused on the Absa Premiership. Be careful what you wish for!!!

“Our exit from CAF Champions League is bad news for Chiefs, because our focus will be on defending what is ours, ABSA Premiership title.”

“The boys did their best, unfortunately they have lost to the number one team in Africa! Better luck next time guys, now we turn our focus to the league and Nedbank cup...touch lets go.”

“I have been saying this from day one that we needed to be more cautious coz the Egyptians were coming for us with sweet prepared revenge. What we did to them last year would not go unchallenged. It is hard luck to the boys. Let’s come back and fight the same fight that will see us back in that CAF again. Remember we practice in the Absa and then we play with the big dogs in Africa.”

Do you think Sundowns can lift the domestic trophies on offer this season?
