Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane will treat the remaining competitions of the current football season equally, including the CAF Champions League.
Over the years, experience has taught the 53 year-old that it’s not wise to put all his eggs in one basket because no competition offers any title guarantee.
The Absa Premiership, Nedbank Cup and CAF Champions League will all receive the same attention. That is Mosimane’s objective with Sundowns as the season enters its final stage.
Sundowns are without silverware so far, therefore he is targeting everything on offer.
“Sometimes when you say my priority is the league, and you end up losing the league because you gave away your focus… with Sundowns I go with the flow.”
The Brazilians have been inconsistent in the league since the start the second half of the season.
That has ruined Mosimane’s plans for the Nedbank Cup and the CAF Champions League.
“We have to use whatever is available to win, because we don’t have that luxury in December; I thought probably we will have that 12 points difference.”
Sundowns play Cape Town All Stars on Friday in a Nedbank Cup first round match.
It’s a team they have done their homework on because in the past, teams from lower divisions have caused upsets.
Sundowns player Aubrey Ngoma says:”I think it’s very difficult because they come more motivated, more hungry – they want to prove a point that they can compete against one of the best in Africa, we have seen over the years that giants have fallen to smaller teams.”
The match on Friday will be an opportunity for Sundowns to continue with their winning ways as they prepare for a congested schedule as their champions league campaign is set to resume soon.
