Cape Town - With an abundance of talent at his disposal, Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane concedes it's not easy to keep an entire squad happy.

The Brazilians have around 30 players registered for the domestic league and the CAF Champions League.

But having been knocked out of Africa two weekends back by Wydad Casablanca, Sundowns' fixture schedule is no longer as frenetic as it may have been.

This will give Mosimane more options in selecting his match-day squads, but will also likely see some players spending more time on the sidelines.

"We have a number of players hanging around and when you don't give them a chance they become unhappy when they don't get game time.

"There are a few players who need support in terms of match fitness," Mosimane was quoted saying by the SowetanLIVE website, following last Sunday's 1-0 win over Platinum Stars.

And he also admitted that his men were some way off their best against the bottom of the table Dikwena.

"You could see that we are coming from a shock (the CAF defeat). We were not really confident, we tried to keep the result rather than to perform."
