Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has urged his squad to move past their recent disappointments and concentrate on winning the league and Confederation Cup.

The Brazilians were knocked out of the CAF Champions League by AS Vita and out of the Nedbank Cup by Orlando Pirates.

Mosimane has backed his players to bounce back from their strife to refocus on the Absa Premiership and CAF Confederations Cup.

"There's still two more cups to go for. I wanted to see how far we could go, but this is the reality and now I can say, 'What do I have in stock? What kind of players do we have, and what kind of players do we need to intensify the team and make it stronger?" Mosimane told KickOff.

"But the team is good - we can't start thinking that because we lost the game the team is no longer good. It was the same against AS Vita - the decision making, and not taking the chances.

"We have to accept that other teams have cups to play for - we had three, now we have two, but it's okay. Let's go for CAF, let's go for the league, that's it."
