Mosimane admits that Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates' illustrious
histories mean that the Brazilians are always playing catch-up.
Sundowns have won the league twice in the last four seasons - making it
seven titles for them in the PSL-era - while also claiming the CAF
Champions League, CAF Super Cup, Telkom Knockout and Nedbank Cups.
Mosimane is confident the Tshwane giants are on the right track.
"You can't outdo Chiefs and Pirates' history. A lot of children
inherit their support for them through their parents," he told the Sowetan website.
"So it will always grow but you can also grow with it by winning.
That's why they will always be bigger. You have to win the big trophies
and play in the bigger spaces to influence fans."
Mosimane is determined to leave a legacy of not only winning
trophies, but also increasing the club's support in Mamelodi, the
township situated close to Pretoria.
"Look at Mamelodi for instance‚ it has Chiefs and Pirates fans too. We are trying to have a bigger influence there," he said.
"That's why when we win‚ we always go there to parade the trophy.
Nothing gives me joy than seeing children in Sundowns jerseys in
Mamelodi. It's unbelievable.
"That's how you grow your support base. The trophy says we are
stronger than them (Chiefs and Pirates)‚ we have seven league titles.
But we need to do more to get the fans like them."
