According to Soccer Laduma, Madida and his troops were taken aback in the first 45 minutes of their PSL encounter as Sundowns put four goals Greg Etafia.

“The first 25 minutes was a moment of madness for us because we had the wind coming at us and we couldn’t contain their wing play,” said Madida.

“It was so simple and easy for them to lay the ball on the sides, so the two midfielders who were supposed to press outside for us didn’t do their duties.

“Our midfielders playing outside also didn’t rack back. Just a moment of madness.”

The goals were courtesy of Alje Schut, Teko Modise and a brace from Cuthbert Malajila while Luyolo Nomandela pulled one back from the penalty spot.
