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
"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."
