Mamelodi Sundowns ladies team were recently handed the winners trophy at an event held at the SAFA headquarters in Nasrec, Agnes Nkosi who is the Captain of the side had a few words to say after having a great season.
“Winning the trophy came with a lot of hard work from all the players. We all gave our best. It was never easy. We had strong opponents that came well prepared. Most of our tough matches were played away. We managed to be strong and consistently switched on for every game. What was key for us was that we took every game as our Cup final. Coach Jerry continuously reiterated that during training. We trained harder to prepare for what awaited us on the field of play hence we were able to win the league undefeated with neither a loss nor draw winning all our games,” said Nkosi.
After a gruesome season without a loss or a draw, the Masandawana ladies have earned themselves a spot at the CAF Women Champions League.
“We truly are grateful for the opportunity to participate in the Women’s CAF Champions League. We are excited to face the best teams in Africa. We have resumed training. Our end goal in mind is to win the CAF tournament and retain our SAFA National Women’s League Champions title. We are already on our sixth week with preparations for the big stages,” concluded Nkosi
