Cairo - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Khama Billiat insists the Brazilians will not be intimidated by the Egyptians' mind games ahead of their eagerly anticipated CAF Champions League final second-leg against Zamalek on Sunday.
READ: No Sundowns training? Mbalula worried...
This comes after Sport24 reported that Teko Modise had received death threats via social media from an individual claiming to be a Zamalek fan.
Pitso Mosimane's charges will be looking to make use of their three-goal advantage over the Royals when the two sides battle for continental glory at the Borg el Arab Stadium in Cairo.
The Brazilians were accused of using 'Muti' after defeating the six-time champions 3-0 last week and Billiat admits that Sundowns have encountered hostile receptions throughout their journey in the tournament.
But the 26-year-old striker assured they will not get distracted by their surroundings and are solely focused on completing their 10-month long mission.
“We have faced hostile receptions before and we don’t worry about things we can’t control,” Billiat insisted.
“But we have soldiered on and now here we are as a team, in the final and leading 3-0 ahead of the second-leg.
“We don’t have to use hostile receptions as an excuse not to perform; we are going there to finish what we started.
“And we don’t have to go there expecting to be warmly welcomed and stay at the best hotel... we have to just go there expecting to play football and enjoy ourselves because that’s what we are going there for.”
Should Sundowns hold on to their 3-0 aggregate lead, they will become the second South African team to be crowned winners in the continent following Orlando Pirates' success back in 1995.
Kick-off is scheduled for 20:30 (SA time).
