Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane
believes the fringe players in his squad are good enough to win the Absa Premiership
The defending champions have assembled a formidable group of
players with proven internationals on the bench or sometimes not in the matchday
Mosimane has every department covered with two or three
players in each position.
This season alone players such as Kennedy Mweene, Ricardo
Nascimento, Oupa Manyisa, Mauricio Affonso and Anthony Laffor have not been
featuring regularly for the Brazilians.
"The team which is not here is good enough to win the
league," Mosimane told SABC.
"If you put Lyle (Lakay), Bangaly (Soumahoro),
(Motjeka) Madisha, Thapelo (Morena), AJ (Andile Jali), (Siphelele) Mkhulise,
Riva (Coetzee) and Phaka (Mahlambi) in a team. They are all available."
Sundowns' next game after the international break will be a
CAF Champions League encounter away to Cote D'Or in Seychelles on 13 September
and Mosimane revealed he will field most of the players that have not been
getting much game time.
Masandawana have the second leg of the MTN semifinal against
Supersport United, which is currently locked at 1-1, just five days after the
Mosimane continued: "We will probably change the team
in Seychelles and everybody must get an opportunity to play, and show us they
can win in Seychelles.
"If it backfires we will sort it out here. Everyone
should raise their hands and play. We also have MTN8.
"It (MTN8) has its own different rules and mentality.
So, far we are doing well."
