Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns legend Zane Moosa believes there is no use complaining and the team should live with their congested fixture schedule.

The Brazilians recently had a request to reschedule some of their domestic matches rejected by the PSL.

Sundowns will face Zesco United in the CAF Champions League fist-leg on Saturday, and second leg on September 24, and will take on Chippa United in the MTN8 semi-final second leg on Wednesday.

"Sundowns have three games in seven days, but that's what happens when you're involved in all competitions...it comes with the territory," Moosa told Soccer Laduma.

"They knew it was going to be like this and I'm sure they're happy to be involved in all these competitions. They have a big squad. I mean, Pirates went through the same thing, you know what I mean, so there's no need to complain."
