The next big task for Mamelodi Sundowns is a clash in the Nedbank Cup final against Bloemfontein Celtic at Orlando Stadium, the Brazilians have already won the Telkom Knockout as well as the League and have a huge opportunity to win the treble with only Siwelele standing in their way.
Coach Pitso Mosimane spoke to the media in a press conference and gave an update on how the team is doing, “we have started training yesterday and the boys responded well, of course They are still coming out from where we were with the Absa Premier League, but even today they look OK, I’m happy with what I saw.”
Coach Pitso Mosimane also gave some feedback regarding the injury status of the boys after the last game of the league.
“We just have those niggling injuries. It’s normal when you just come from a battle, you come with wounded soldiers and deep scars, we rested a few guys who are not yet back from injury. Sirino has got a niggling injury, we don’t know if he will make it. Hlompho we just arrested him because this guy has played all the minutes in the bubble. Dennis is training well, so hopefully, he’s OK. Musa has not started training. It’s just minor knocks, you know, when you come from the game. But nothing big, bigger than the old Ricardo who’s got a hand, a wrist that also gives him a problem. That’s why he’s been playing with the wristband. But I don’t know if we should be OK one on one on that side.”
“It is a difficult game, of course, Siwelele are a different team, difficult team, those guys are enjoying themselves, the happy team, free-spirited, and then they play good football. They pass. I just saw the game last night, one of the games they played, they can just pass the ball played against Bidvest Wits. It is a team that has got nothing to lose but to give everything. That’s how I see the game,” concluded Coach Pitso Mosimane.
