Two cup finals and the season has merely just begun! Mamelodi Sundowns are on a quest to jot themselves down in football's history books.
It has been an incredible past year for Pitso Mosimane and his charges after they secured the 2015/16 PSL title and it seems like there is nothing that will stop Masandawana from reaching for the stars.
Having already secured spots in the MTN8 and the CAF Champions League finals, Downs are bursting with confidence and are showing fellow teams that nothing is impossible. It is amazing to see how the team has evolved under the mentorship of Mosimane, who has grown as a coach too.
Taking part in Africa is always a bit of nightmare task as teams have to face the unexpected, from an increase in the number of games played to facing challenges in other countries both on and off the field. Downs have managed to endure it all, and after 15 years away from the African spotlight, the club should be proud of progressing to the final.
Looking at their MTN8 final against Bidvest Wits, this is one trophy Mosimane will seek to win domestically as he has not been able to claim it since taking charge of the Brazilians. Could this final give us a glimpse of what we could expect in the CAF Champions League showcase? Only time will tell…
What do you think of Sundowns' progress since coach Pitso took charge?
