No Sundowns training? Mbalula worried...

2016-10-21 08:09
Cape Town - Minister of Sport and Recreation Fikile Mbalula has read with concern reports of Mamelodi Sundowns' inability to train after their Egyptian hosts failed to issue them with a venue ahead of Sunday's CAF Champions League second leg final. 

“I have noted with grave concern reports coming from Egypt that Sundowns could not train. We are irked by such behaviour and condemn it in the strongest terms. These actions have made prestigious championships like CAF not to be respected. All football loving people must frown upon such incidents. This culture is foreign in football and should be done away with,” Mbalula said. 

Sundowns take a 3-0 lead after the first leg into Sunday's match which will kick off at 20:30 (SA time).
