Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane admits his side are suffering a dip in form and he hasn't yet found his best starting line-up.

The African champions have in the last month been knocked out of the CAF Champions League at the quarter-final stage, and have also been beaten by Kaizer Chiefs and AmaZulu in their last two league matches.

Mosimane feels that a strenuous past couple of years due to their participation in Africa has caught up with his team, and wants the supporters to continue backing the club while he tries to steer the team through a difficult phase.

"I foresee a little bit of turbulence along the way this season and Sundowns fans must be patient, they must buckle up‚" he was quoted saying by TimesLive.

"It is going to be a tough season because we did not stabilise the team this year due to a lot of injuries. I have not found my starting eleven proper," Mosimane admitted.

The Brazilians' mentor is hoping that recent successes will see the supporters cutting the team a bit of slack.

"Sundowns supporters are used to winning and that is the only language they know. I understand that they are agitated.

"It is good because some of them travelled with us to Cairo and Japan and they felt the challenges we faced on the road.

"I think they understand all those factors and playing three seasons in a row without a break‚ we have done a lot of miles.

"I think we are going to go through a dip and we must buckle up. But we will come back because we have enough quality to play," he added.
