Mokwena: Winning games is no small task

Despite starting the league campaign with a perfect 100 percent record, Mamelodi Sundowns coach believes winning matches is no small task.

Sundowns has won seven matches in as many matches with the last victory coming against Orlando Pirates.

“The league is highly competitive and every match day brings a multitude of surprises,” Mokwena said.

“Winning games in the league is no small task, which is why I believe my team does not always get the credit they deserve. We are continually working to enhance our game.

“However, we have faced various challenges presented by different teams, including those that are highly physical and those with complex tactical setups.

“There are no straightforward matches and we invest a lot of effort to achieve the desired results.”
The Sundowns mentor has also praised Chilean international, Marcelo Allende, for his contribution.

“Marcelo possesses an array of incredible attributes. Firstly, he has an exceptional footballing mind and I believe he has the potential to become a top coach someday.

“The level of tactical discussions I have with Marcelo truly stimulates my thinking. He is also surrounded by top-notch players and it is a case of ‘iron sharpens iron.’

“There are certain things a coach cannot take credit for and this is one of them. Secondly, he is an outstanding human being and it is the little things he does off the pitch that thrill me on so many occasions.”
