Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has hailed the 'pure
brotherhood' in the Brazilians camp embodied by Themba Zwane's unselfish
gesture towards Jose Ali Meza.
Zwane's generosity was on display for all to see in the 5-0
thumping of AmaZulu in the Telkom Knockout on Sunday when he teed up Jose Ali
Meza for a simple tap-in and his first goal of the season in domestic
And Mosimane believes Zwane's act is indicative of the healthy
team spirit at the back-to-back league champions.
"So generous of Themba Zwane to give to Ali Meza
because in the club we have been talking that Meza has been working hard and he
needs a goal," Mosimane told KickOff.
"That shows brotherhood from Themba. It's unbelievable.
He could have scored that goal. He needed to give him confidence. When you see
that from teammates then you know you have a team.
"It's pure brotherhood because Meza has been struggling
to score but he gave him [the ball to score]."
The victory over Usuthu sees Masandawana progress to the
second round of the competition where they join Orlando Pirates, Kaizer Chiefs
and SuperSport United in the quarter-finals.
Mosimane's men have a tricky week ahead of them with a game
against Highlands Park at home on Wednesday before a crucial fixture against
top-of-the-table Kaizer Chiefs at Loftus Versfeld on Sunday.
Kick-off is at 15:00.
