Pretoria - Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Dennis Onyango has praised head coach Pitso Mosimane for his passion for the game, suggesting the Brazilians are where they are today due to his influence at the club.

The Brazilians ended the 2015 calendar year on a high note following their Telkom Knockout Cup victory (3-1 over Kaizer Chiefs) and at the summit of the Absa Premiership table.

The Ugandan international said Mosimane's work-rate is an inspiration to him and his team-mates.

"He has the passion for the game and you can see that he never sits down when he's on the sideline," said Onyango.

"He gets the balance between football and his family because our families support us through tough times and good times.

"He does give us some time off to be with our families when we go through those tough times.

"But when it's time for work he wants everyone to work full-time.

"So I believe the positive impact he has on the players is why we are doing so well this year."
