Cape Town - Former Malawi national team coach Ernest Mtawali believes that Pitso Mosimane's charges are capable of winning every trophy on offer this season.

The former Masandawana man cited the Chloorkop-based outfit's balance and discipline, when suggesting that they could win all trophies on offer.

"It's good to see the coach and his technical team are doing well with the players and the team," he told Soccer Laduma.

"Looking at how Sundowns are playing it's highly possible they can defend the league title and win other trophies as well."

Mosimane's side are currently in the semi-final stages of both the CAF Champions League and MTN 8 competitions, where they will face Zambian outfit Zesco United and arch-rivals SuperSport United respectively.

"They have a well balanced and disciplined side which on its own wants to leave a history for the team and that's helping them a lot," he concluded.

Mosimane's bolstered their squad during the transfer window with the acquisitions of Anele Ngcongca, Sibusiso Vilakazi, Lucky Mohomi, Thapelo Morena and Ricardo Nascimento.
