Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns defender Mario Booysen says that their dismal start to the season is “not a true reflection” of how they play.

According to Soccer Laduma, Sundowns were knocked out of the opening round of the MTN8 Cup by Bloemfontein Celtic which followed a string of bad results for the Chloorkop side.

“We might not have started well in our league campaign and lost out on the MTN8, but Sundowns always competes and we will try to win all of the remaining trophies, starting with the Telkom Knockout,” Booysen said.

“We might not be doing that well, but there is no pressure on us. At Sundowns it is about winning so we have put the past behind us and focus on our next league games and on the Telkom Knockout.

“Our poor start to the season is not a true reflection of how we play as a team. It is not like we have been playing badly.

“Such things happen in football and we just have to stick to what we have planned to achieve this season and take it one game at a time.”
