Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns' billionaire owner Patrice Motsepe has praised coach Pitso Mosimane as well as the PSL as a whole for improving the standard of football on display this season. 

Motsepe was a part of the celebrations as Sundowns lifted the Premiership trophy following the final-day 0-0 draw with Bloemfontein Celtic at the Dr Molemela Stadium on Saturday. 

The success was a record-setting eighth league crown for the Brazilians, of which five have been secured while the wealthy mining magnate has been in charge at Chloorkop. 

Speaking of Mosimane's influence and the generally improving standard of local football, he told SuperSport: "We want to thank the supporters, Pitso, the players, also the leadership of the PSL - wonderful work - and each and every team. 

"A lot of very, very good work has been done and I think we can all be very, very proud as South Africans - the quality of football is very, very good. 

"But, there's still a long way to go and we just hope that the good work that Pitso is doing with the players will continue. 

"It's the ambitions of supporters, of various stakeholders, it's not necessarily my vision. I think I'm just honoured to be part of many, many stakeholders, who've made humble contributions, including the players and club owners who were there before me."
