“We do not want to become familiar with losing,” – the Mamelodi Sundowns coach said as quoted by IOL.

“Sundowns are the gold standard of South African club football. We are by far the best team in the country.

“We find ourselves in a moment of transition and though seemingly seamless and easy on the eye.

“The make-up of the squad is that they have less than 200 Champions League appearances together.”
