Pitso not bothered by Sundowns’ title challengers


Cape Town – Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane believes there are no clear-cut title challengers due to the current dynamic of the Absa Premiership.

The first-half of the 2017/18 campaign saw some teams participate in three cup competitions – MTN8, Telkom Knockout and CAF Champions League/Confederations Cup.

This meant teams would have to play catch-up and reschedule their league matches.

However, the majority of the teams have now played 16 games since the league resumed last week as the log finally takes shape.

The Brazilians hold a 4-point lead over second-placedCape Town City with Free State Stars (3rd), Kaizer Chiefs (4th), Orlando Pirates (5th) and Bloemfontein Celtic (6th) following.

The former Bafana Bafana mentor was quick to brush off any concern of who he thinks will challenge the seven-time Absa Premiership champions.

“I can’t comment on the club’s behind me, I can only comment on my team,” said Mosimane.

“I don’t know of the club’s behind me.

“In this league you can see … there’s a new team second, there’s a new team third, there’s a new team fourth, so you never know. That one is not in our hands.”

Sundowns next welcome Orlando Pirates to Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 15:30.
