Mokwena: Man City, Liverpool Go Through It Also!
Posted: 29 April 2021
Mamelodi Sundowns FC Co-Head Coach Rhulani Mokwena has accepted that his side are going through a difficult time but made reference to top European sides also going through a hard spell as well.
At a press conference this morning, the tactically astute young gaffer, said;
“We’re in the business end of the season, we know what’s at stake. We are in a very difficult block; which is in regards to how we divide the matches, so this block of five was always going to be difficult, but the good thing is that we’ve done the hard part, the hard part being to accumulate points to sit in a position where when we go through a difficult moment, we still at the top.
“We still believe that we are okay. Mamelodi Sundowns has been here before, the players have the right amount of experience to deal with this hardship. We knew it’s going to happen (going through a difficult spell); it happens to Manchester City, Liverpool – same, Real Madrid CF – same, Barcelona – same.
“So, there is no perfect season, and we would be very naive to think we sat in a position where we were twenty one (21) games unbeaten in the domestic league, to think that we’d have a perfect season,” concluded Mokwena.
Sundowns next face an Orlando Pirates team that comes from a narrow defeat to Nigerian giants Enyimba FC in the African Confederations Cup last night, and also looking to right the wrongs when The Brazilians hit Pirates for four a couple of weeks ago.
