Ng'ambi: Sundowns will want to make a statement

Cape Town - Platinum Stars striker Robert Ng’ambi has warned his team-mates ahead of a clash on Sunday against Tshwane giants Mamelodi Sundowns.

The Brazilians will not be able to defend their continental crown after they were recently eliminated from the CAF Champions League, and Ng’ambi believes they will want to make a statement against bottom of the table Dikwena.

"They will come into the game with the mindset of making a statement against us after losing out in the CAF," Ng’ambi was quoted by the SowetanLIVE website.

"It will just be up to us players to focus and make sure we are at our best against what is for me, the best team on the continent."

Rumours abound are that the club is on the verge of being sold, which has led to speculation that it’s what is responsible for their difficult start to the campaign, where they are yet to pick up a win after six games.

But, the Malawian international said the players were not paying any attention to what was happening in the boardroom.

"As players, we have not been concentrating on what is happening in the background with the club," he said.

"Our duty is to win games and remain competitive in the league."

Platinum Stars will welcome Sundowns to the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace on Sunday afternoon.

Kick off is at 15:00.
