Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says he
has to be bold and believe his side can win the Absa Premiership or he risks the wrath of the clubs supporters.
There are a number of sides who are challenging for the
title in 2018/19 with the likes of Orlando Pirates and Cape Town City all in
Sundowns recently beat Maritzburg United 2-1 to move to the
top of the standings as they go in search of a record extending ninth title.
As such, Mosimane takes the view that being bold is
important to being successful. He told reporters: "Do you think there is a
team that plays that does not want to win the league? Be honest now.
"I mean if Cape Town City says they want to win, they
believe. The boy who scored the free kick [Chris] David, he says, 'if you
believe you can win, you can win' What a talk from the boy. They believe they
can win the league and why not?
"I've seen them beat Orlando Pirates, I've seen them
beat Wits and I've seen them beat us. So, what makes you say they can't win the
league. They have a chance also. So, anything is possible, Kaitano [Tembo] can
still win the league, honestly, it's doable. We want to win the league and we
say it. We are never shy to say it.
"I can't face Sundowns supporters and say, 'I don't
know if we want to win the league'. I can't, they'll kill me. We have eight
titles, we said we want to go to nine and we want to go to 10. We want another
star. I can't play modest, I want to win the league."
