Mokwena: We want to win our Group

Mamelodi Sundowns coach, Rulani Mokwena, says his team will go into the match against Coton Sport with intentions of finishing as Group B winners.

Sundowns, who have already qualified for knockout stages, host the Cameroon side and a win for Masandawana will see finish on top Group B with 14 points.

“It’s been a good break for us. There’s been good energy since we’ve returned, and a lot of good work has been done,” Mokwena said. “We now concentrate on preparing to play against a very good side, Coton Sport.

“Their results don’t show that, but you can see the quality in the team and with regards to their attack. They have Patient Wassou, Ramsas Nguimzeu and other good players in the team.

“These are players that can create problems for anybody, they have very aggressive fullbacks – they average 15 crosses into the box per match. We have to make sure that we perform well to win the match.

“We have to make sure that we are at our best on Saturday and we perform very well if we want to win the match. It’s important for us to finish on top in Group B.”

The draw for Caf Champions League quarterfinal will be on Wednesday, 5 April.

“Winning is a habit, it sounds cliché, but it’s important that we go into the knockout rounds with the feeling of knowing how to win. This is the mentality that we have to carry into the match.”

The match will be played at Loftus Versfeld Stadium and kick off is at 21h00.
