Neeskens eyes MTN8 thriller
Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Johan Neeskens believes Saturday's MTN8
semi-final against Moroka Swallows should prove a thrilling encounter as
both sides go in search of silverware.
The Brazilians finished last season empty handed after losing the
Nedbank Cup final to SuperSport United, while the Dube Birds also
missed out on a trophy as they finished the PSL campaign as runners-up
behind Orlando Pirates.
The fact both teams came so close to securing titles last term
leaves Neeskens believing the hunger for success will be running rife in
both squads, which should equate to a pulsating first-leg encounter at
the Lucas Moripe Stadium.
"Swallows finished as runners-up last season, and they would
obviously have ambitions to win something this year. We also want the
same," the Dutchman told The Sowetan.
"Everybody grabbed their chances last season, and it's time for us to grab ours in these two games (first and second leg)."
