Amakhosi are on top of the log but their two victories over AmaZulu FC and Baroka FC were marred by poor referees’ decisions. Sundowns will tackle Chiefs in a crucial League match at Loftus stadium in Pretoria on Sunday.
Sundowns are competing in the Absa Premiership, CAF Champions League and the Telkom Knockout Cup. They are second on the log and they have reached the group stages of Champs League, as well as the quarter-finals of the Telkom Cup. Mabunda says they have the depth to compete on all front.
Sundowns have got quality players in all the departments especially in midfield. They have the likes of Andile Jali, Hlompho Kekana, Sammy Seabi, Oupa Manyisa, Rivaldo Coetzee and few others. Mabunda says competition is good.
Mabunda is currently on the sidelines with a knee injury. He is back at training and expects to be back on the pitch soon.
There will be few players who are likely to make their debut against Chiefs such as Mauricio Affonso, while other players such as Sphelele Mkhulise and Motjeka Madisha are still inexperienced. Mabunda says he will guide them. – Report by Vincent Sitsula
