Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns defender Siyanda Zwane believes the team had a successful campaign because of the culture of hard work instilled by coach Pitso Mosimane.

Sundowns clinched the Premiership with a record 71 points and the Telkom Knockout title in a landmark run.

Zwane also revealed that the players work obsessively each day with football activities, including training and video analysis.

"At Sundowns you start the gym at eight in the morning and you are out at four later in the day because in the morning you at training and at 10 you are done," Zwane told KickOff.

"After that at twelve you are going to the video session and watching videos of our next opponent and analysing them. So it was a lot of hard work. To be where we are we have earned this and we really did work hard.

"When you have a wife you end up fighting with her and sometimes you have been away for four days and when you arrive back home, you are watching matches that you played.

"You want to analyse them and you want to make notes because you want to improve every game and end up not having her time so we truly worked hard. It was not like finish training and go home... no."
