Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane was lyrical about his Premiership conquering side after lifting the title for a record seventh time.

The Brazilians were officially crowned champions on the final day of the league following their 1-0 victory over Platinum Stars on Saturday.

The victory saw Sundowns set a new benchmark of 71 points in a season with 21 wins, three losses and six draws.

Mosimane dared any of their Premiership adversaries to surpass their new record in the coming season.

"The boys are true champions. They have a lot of discipline in their game. Even though they are star players but they work hard. It's a very good day for us," Mosimane said after the match.

"We have Tebogo Langerman and Rama Mphahlele in the national team, it means we are doing something right. The mentality is good and the boys work hard.

"We have come far as a team. We scored many goals and won big games. To win 21 games out of 30 and lose only three, it's unbelievable.

"We put the Sundowns flag on top of Kilimanjaro and told the other teams to go get it. I am happy for everybody and the fans."
