Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Themba Zwane says the enforced
break as a result of the coronavirus may inadvertently help the team.
Downs are currently second on the Premier League standings
with 44 points, four points adrift of leaders Kaizer Chiefs, but having played
a game more.
While it is yet unclear if or when the PSL will be able to
resume, Zwane says a tired Sundowns will be able to use their time off to rest,
recuperate as well as maintain fitness.
He told KickOff: "For me, I'd say this (break) is good
for us, because we have time to rest now and reset ourselves, and plan for when
we come back.
"We currently have groups where we are still analysing
our own games as a team, we can't stop. Sometimes we also analyse overseas
games of big teams so that we can improve our play.
"So, I think it's the right time for us to get this
rest because I think fatigue was kicking in, and there were a lot of players
"But now I'm sure, when we come back, everyone will be
okay and injury-free, and we will get our team to full strength and then we
will compete for the league.
"And for us, our aim is to win all our games and that's
all. If we win all our remaining games, we'll be champions because we still
have to play Chiefs as well."
