Mosimane Resilient in defeat

Mamelodi Sundowns went down 2 -0 on the weekend to a high flying Al Ahly side in Cairo, and will have it all to do in the second leg of the CAF Champions League Quarter Finals this weekend.

Mosimane, gracious in defeat to the Egyptian giants drew positives from an otherwise frustrating outing for the Brazilians:

“Congratulations to Ahly, I think they are a good team, big team, lots of pressure and they managed to deal with the pressure.”

The Coach also issued a rallying cry to the Brazilian faithful to show up in numbers over the weekend:

“We have to turn the volume up in Pretoria, we have to, we don’t have an option. We have to score in Pretoria. We are professionals we need to keep calm, we need to respect the game. We scored 11 goals in one match, so we can score two goals.”

Make sure you get your tickets for this weekend’s all or nothing clash with Al Ahly at Lucas Moripe Stadium.

    Giving up or throwing the towel is not in our DNA, turning the tables is one of our most immediate term goal, we are positive,we are serious, the valiant never test of death but once! The only thing l can say to the team , go for them guys, we are behind you in full force,go for the jugular vein,the pain you can inflict now has no revenge soon, why not do it in any case! what happened to Sundowns in the first leg eventually happened to all seeded teams,they all lost in their first legs, there is no team that is prepared to lose at their home ground at this stage. we must only know how far we must go ahead, siyabangena, we cant wait ! Last year you did it, while the team was struggling and blunt, this year its a threshing instrument, it has humbled many teams in Caf, AL AHLY must consider themselves lucky to have gotten their revenge victory, and they must not rule out a baptism of fire in Pretoria.All the Best to the team, technical team and the Yellow nation at large. kby

    I am in Lucas Masterpieces Moripe Stadium on Suturday, come rain or shine. We are the Brazilians and we’ll flip the tables. I am never scared, Sundowns is never scared. We are the Yellow Nation by force. By 17 O’clock AL Ahly will know that Pretoria/ Tshwane is a house of pain.

    It is very encouraging to see so many Sundowns fans rally behind the team even those doubting Thomasses who only comment negetively when the team has lost will be proven wrong. KBY I remain.

    I still want to believe that if Sundowns preparations for all matches can have the same intensity , same focus as the current one , even if we are not there, we can feel, it, smell it and imagine it. One does not need to be there to see the attitude of the players towards this game, we know, and we know their intentions. If my team can have the same attitude to all opponents coming by, very few teams can survive a public humiliation, everything revolves around the attitude, the intensity must always be the same. As of the outcome we are persuaded based on the right attitude for the game .Can the team use the same attitude hence forth.

    Who am I to tell the coach of Pitso’s caliber which players must he select but this is my opinion and a humble request. The back 4 will remain with the coach but if he plays 2-3-1 and go for Jali, Kekana – Sirino Zwane, Mahlambi/Mukhulise – Vilakazi or 4-2 formation with Jali, Kekana, Zwane, Sirino – Vilakazi, Mahlambi. Yellow I remain
