Mosimane expecting a ‘game of small margins’

Mamelodi Sundowns have settled well and are deep into their preparations for this coming weekend’s crunch Group C clash against Wydad AC.

“We received a warm reception and I am humbled that myself and the team are well received in this area” said Coach Pitso after the Brazilians received a warm welcome at the airport as well as the team hotel.

The Brazilians who have now concluded two training sessions under floodlights have been put through their paces by the technical team as they look to adapt to the Northern Hempisphere conditions.

“We had our first session last night, the pitch wasn’t the best but the best in that space”

“This isn’t going to be a game of many chances, you must take opportunities, it’s a game of small margins and that might be your only opportunity in the game” concluded Mosimane.

    Thank you for the progress update in Morocco . We wish you all the best , we are happy for the good report, that is a sign that they have now accepted you and you can now begin to play your game and they can also accept your win , that is a sign that you are no longer enemies, you are now considered, no more reason to be intimidated by even those crowds and their way of celebration. We also believe you will put up a good fight and emerge victorious. The secret really is to take your chances with precision , anticipating the stray, rebounds and loose balls and converting them. Not to see a re bound coming to fall on your head , concentration will cause a player to be alert of his surroundings, and that is how these North African teams score, expecting a loose ball that may happen once or twice in a match and collide with a ready player. Remember your record against AL Ahly is still real in the memories of all North African Countries, no team cam undermine you even if you get a warm welcome. You rather be uncomfortable a bit.We are fully behind you.KBY

  4. Mr Coach please bring back 3 point or 1 cause we can’t afford to loose this game of magnitude.hopefully our midfield will utilise Affonso height to our advantage cause if we use him to hi strength will come back home victorious.wishing you all the best and we are all behind you back home.

  5. Well said Members, I would like to wish good luck to our technical team, Fitness team, Medical team i know you will be busy this December month, I will like to wish the yellow foot soldiers abundance of luck to have that strength to enable you to beat Wydad for the first time in their own back yard, if you focus and make sure that you don’t stop running until the ball is out of play, defenders ensure that you don’t stop defending the ball until the referee blow that whistle, The Goalkeepers ensure that you control your 18 area, last time they scored from the distance, Midfielders ensure that those balls are won and passes are played in those goal scoring areas and for our strikers to score them. the Wydad rivals will be supporting you and please JUST DO IT i know you can. we are with you all the way. LUV THIS TEAM

  6. Member i have a good suggestion for our enemies here, Every year one team is raising and representing Mzansi Internationally, and this team every year wins the league and people get hurt badly and the team’s presidents get hurt we saw with Wits, The Rats and now the Zebras are going to get hurt later next year, so i suggest that yes it is not fair to compare The Brazilians with these Mzansi teams hence i suggest that every South African regard us the same level as Bafana and support this team they must support their team and still support Sundowns, the central Africa have decided to do it, the north Africans are doing it . our players are received well in Morocco, Nigeria, etc. and since they do that they enjoy watching this yellow machine. make yourself a favor and stop challenging a war that you will not win, Sundowns e ya mura young. so that is the suggestion. chose mazi khethele.

    Thank you Dawanas I’m watching the game live on,we are playing beautiful soccer mark my words.

  8. Thank you boys for a beautiful game, you played your heart out and the Technical team was providing good guidance. Morena could have scored but he missed, the way they play there is no point for them in Pretoria, USM Alger drew in Angola, so we must collect our 6 points from them. Today i am going to sleep very well. See you boys on Wednesday, and at Moses Mabida on the 14th. Ka bo yellow i will remain, Sundownse dumela.

    The guys did their best, we accept a point, nil- nil, we indeed expected a narrow margin, tables are turning to our favour. We can celebrate a draw for the first time. Thank you guys next time you will take the full points.

    I have seen many people just plunk them in a vase of water and that’s it.
