The Brazilians are 13 points behind Chiefs with 10 games of the season left to play, but they have two games in hand on Amakhosi.

Mosimane's confidence stems from Chiefs' surprise loss 2-0 loss to SuperSport United, the Absa Premiership leader's first loss since April last year.

"I told you that I have seen this movie before," Mosimane said.

"I don't know how it is going to end but there are some common things coming out.

“We believe we can still win the League. I believe we have enough games to win the League."

The Sundowns coach did admit that Chiefs still hold all the cards, but stated his charges will be relentless in their chase for the title.

"It's not going to be easy. Chiefs can lose two games and still smile. They are in a comfortable position.

“They took themselves into a very good position where they can lose and still smile.

"Two games in hand doesn't mean anything. You must win them and start to talk.

“At this point in time you would be happier to be Chiefs coach than Sundowns coach.

"We are still chasing," he added.
