Pretoria - 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.

With one 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.

The 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?

“But you cannot buy it; you have to play for it like everyone else.”
