Cape Town - Former Sundowns midfielder Roger Feutmba feels the Brazilians need more skilful players in the middle of the park, instead of playing with two defensive midfielders.
Coach Pitso Mosimane has opted to use either Soumahoro Banagaly or Tiyani Mabunda alongside Hlompo Kekana in Downs center of the park this season, leaving the likes of Themba Zwane and Teko Modise on the bench- something that the former Cameroon international disagrees with completely.
"Let me just say personally, I think with the style of Sundowns, I don’t think they need to use that two defensive midfielders. Sundowns doesn’t need to play with two defensive midfielders," Feutmba told Goal website.
"I believe they were doing very well when they had Kekana only as a defensive midfielder and Teko Modise as an offensive midfielder who was able to move forward quickly and who is technically skillful," he said.
"I think they need to have two offensive players who are quick and can use their speed and quick thinking on the ball to speed up the attacking movements more faster than what is currently happening now with the two defensive midfielders," he added.
"I don’t think there was a need for them to use two defensive midfielders especially in that game against Vita because they needed to score more goals, they needed to win," he stressed.
"If they were leading 2-0 (from the first-leg) then it would have been fine to change the system around to protect the advantage you have, but at that point there was no advantage to protect. There was a need to score more goals," Feutmba concluded.
