Cape Town - Former Mamelodi Sundowns assistant coach Alex Bapela has hit out at the technical team at the club for sowing division among the players.

Bapela, who had a fallout with Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane, suggested that the team is doomed if it continues to operate under the same climate.

"Favouritism is killing Sundowns and I believe the team that is playing is definitely not the best team we have," Bapela told Soccer Laduma.

"Players aren't treated equally, which is why some of them lack motivation.

"We shouldn't be struggling against some of these teams, but when you play unmotivated players, then that's unfortunately what you get."

Sundowns return to action on Wednesday, October 28 evening when they welcome Polokwane City to the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

Mosimane's men occupy fifth place in the Absa Premiership standings ahead of Tuesday night's round of league fixtures, having picked up 13 points from their opening seven games of the season.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
