Neo Maema ready to go!

“Coming into the SuperSport game I think we prepared very well especially in the first half. We were on to them because we planned to get behind their defence.” Mamelodi Sundowns attacking midfielder Neo Maema told the club’s media department.

“I thought we used the spaces in front of the defense very well. Although we didn’t get so much time before the game, we played back-to-back games. We only got two days in between.

“I’m happy that we really stuck in, especially in the first half and we got a goal. It’s not the result that we wanted but I’m just happy with my performance.”

Mamelodi Sundowns need to be fresh!

“The most important thing is to rest. Recovery is the most important thing. Going into the next game we’ve already started with the analysis of Sekhukhune.

“We know what we are going to face. Luckily for us it’s a Mamelodi Sundowns home game and we don’t have to travel. It’s more about zoning in and getting as much rest as possible so we can be fresh going into the game.”
