Mamelodi Sundowns have been crowned the CAF Champions League champions. Although the Brazilians lost 1-0 in Alexandria this weekend, they came out victorious thanks to an aggregate 3-1 scoreline. Supporters Club spoke to one of the club's superfans, China.
"First, let me thank South Africans for supporting us (Sundowns) in our journey to conquering Africa. We received a lot of support, love and encouragement from everyone in South Africa. The stadium was packed in our home leg of the final," China said.
"Our president, Mr Motsepe, has invested a lot in this team, and it had to come from home, from a South African in coach Pitso. He (Motsepe) changed the whole set-up of SA football in terms of the value of the players and it has now paid off greatly for him. He tried everything in the world, he hired some of the best coaches in the world, your Neeskeens, Stoichkov and others. He deserves the praise.
"The team itself is blended well, with youth and experience, your Teko Modises, who have done it all, and the young Percy Taus, your Dollys and others. This is gonna stay with them forever. The referee on the day was good also, he was brilliant.
"Lastly, my message to all South Africans is that we can do it, but we need to work extra hard."
Do you think more SA teams now have a chance of winning the CAF CL in the future?
