Seven games later Mamelodi Sundowns are still at the summit of the log standings with seventeen points, five wins and two draws and no loss registered. Last night’s clash against TS Galaxy was the first time the two sides met and what a great way to start against the newbies.
“Preparations were not easy, they were tough, everyone was strained not only mentally but also emotionally. We played with the same ease that we always find at Mamelodi Sundowns. We played against an arrogant TS Galaxy who play with pride and I could see in the last five minutes of the first half we suffered. We delighted with three points and we move on. Said Steve Kompela
Next clash for Mamelodi Sundowns is Golden Arrows away from home and the clash against Abafana Besthende promises to be a humdinger and only maximum points will be a top prize.
“Our players understood that we are in a position of convenience and perform and give great results. It has not been easy and from the game, you could see the emotions from the players after the game and shows that it meant a lot to them” said Coach Komphela.
Themba Zwane scored his seventh goal for the season and Coach Steve Komphela touched on “Mshishi’s” performance and said that “Zwane is a player who players effortlessly, he is only getting better. look at the goal he scored, he just picked the spot and that shows he plays without stress, he is composed and is happy. I still see a room for improvement in his game. He needs to go to a room of discomfort and then you will see he can be a monster”, concluded Coach Steve Komphela.
