Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane admits that he wants to win
the 2017 CAF Champions League and earn the Brazilians a gold star following
their tremendous run in the continental showpiece.
group stage clash remaining, the Brazilians are sitting comfortably at the
summit of Group B with six points clear from second placed Zamalek and have
advanced through to the semi-finals which will be played over two-legs.
Brazilians will face Enyimba, in the last Group B encounter, away from home on
August 23 and Mosimane said that they are not feeling pressured but instead the
Pretoria giants are enjoying their good run.
“Now we are
just enjoying ourselves, no pressure at all,” comments Mosimane
“This is our
second consecutive year in the CAF Champions league; remember TP Mazembe
eliminated us before the group stages last year.
“And now we
have improved, we are in the semi-finals now and we told ourselves that next
year (2018) we’ll try and win it.
“But yes for
now we want to win it as well, yes we want a gold star who doesn’t want it?
cannot buy it; you have to play for it like everyone else.”
