Cape Town - Head coach Pitso Mosimane said on Monday that with the number of games in a season there is no way a player can play for Mamelodi Sundowns without having a disciplined social life.

Sundowns were held to a 0-0 draw by Orlando Pirates in an exciting Absa Premiership clash despite ending goalless at the Orlando Stadium.

As it happened: Orlando Pirates 0-0 Mamelodi Sundowns

Mosimane though praised his team's efforts in a heavily congested season - that has seen his side compete on various fronts - ahead of a Champions League clash against Al Ahly on Saturday.

"I give credit to the boys," Mosimane said in a post-match interview. "They've played two Champions League campaigns in one PSL season.

"You can never play for Sundowns at this high level without leading the right type of life. Your social life has to be proper, these boys are soldiers and they play football the proper way.

"That is why it's not easy when your social life is not fitting in with the club, you will always struggle because it's too many games.

Kick-off in the Champions League clash is at 15:00.
