Mosimane plots Chiefs downfall

Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane expects arch rivals Kaizer Chiefs to capitulate during the second half of the Premiership season.

Mosimane acknowledged that Chiefs were currently well clear at the top of the Premiership standings but also made a point of reminding the football fraternity that Amakhosi were in this position less than twelve months ago.

Chiefs will have to negotiate a gruelling 2015 schedule, which includes a CAF Champions League campaign, the Nedbank Cup and the Premiership itself. Mosimane understands as well as anybody that CAF competition can have an adverse affect on a team’s league campaign.

While Sundowns will be in a similar boat to their Soweto counterparts during that period, Mosimane still thinks that Bafana Ba Style will be in the perfect position to pounce on the opportunity, primarily because his squad has been adequately beefed up in anticipation of the CAF Champions League campaign.

"Sundowns is a big club that needs to be at the top and we have managed to restore the pride. This is just the start. We are very ambitious and next season we will do our best to fight for our title," said Mosimane, following his team’s 2-1 win against Ajax Cape Town on Saturday.

"Once we get going we are hard to stop. We just need to get a run of positive results. Last season we were able to do it and this team has quality.

"Chiefs are doing well but we are just waiting for them to begin to drop points and that is where we have to capitalise."
