We Respected The Badge – Mosimane

Pitso Mosimane was proud to see his Mamelodi Sundowns side put into practice what they’d discussed prior to their 11-1 victory over Cote d’Or FC of Seychelles in the return leg of their CAF Champions League first round tie on Friday night.

The Brazilians moved to the next phase of the continental competition in great style following an aggregate score of 16-1, a result which very much pleased the coach.

“I was not surprised with the score because I saw already in Seychelles that we had an opportunity to score early. What’s good about the game is that we spoke with the guys before the match that we need to practice some of the things we always do,” said Mosimane.

What encouraged the coach more was the desire from the players to try and improve the scoreline despite knowing they were home and dry.

“And because the resistance from the opposition was not strong, we achieved some of the things we are always talking about and planning to do. What’s more important is that you could see every time we scored there was an urgency to go again, which showed respect for the Sundowns badge and our supporters. That was very good professionalism. They really made sure they don’t play for ball possession and sit on the ball as long as we want. We had agreed that we are going to score,” Mosimane explained.

The Brazilians will next face Black Leopards in Thohoyandou in an Absa Premiership clash on Wednesday night looking to carry the momentum.

    I like the way Pitso has instilled the discipline amongst his players,you will never find a Sundowns player showboating irrespective of the scoreline,that to me is a sign of a great coach with solid leadership….under Pitso Sundowns have grown in leaps and bounds.

    We congratulate and salute the team for once again moving to the group stages of the CAF after a deadly showpiece of football, breaking records is allowed and always feels good, Sundowns must be feared and must grow also to equal the task , when you set the bar for your selves you must be ready to measure up, all teams begin to think twice and you just have to rise to the occasion. We wish to see goals locally too, it has got a nice feeling to have your name appear in the scoresheet of such a margin.All the best, we hope the confidence is back now.
