JOHANNESBURG – Pitso Mosimane’s tone was full of humility after Mamelodi Sundowns ascended to the summit of the Absa Premiership log for the first time this season, but the words that came out were peppered with bravado.
The Brazilians beat Cape Town City 3-2 at Loftus Versfeld on Wednesday. Sundowns lead second-placed Bidvest Wits by one point but the Tshwane giants have a game in hand.
“We’re trying to go to (league title) No. 9 (in the PSL-era),” Mosimane said.
“We want the other star (for winning 10 league titles). It’s not going to be easy. (Orlando) Pirates isn’t going to give us the title. They’re scoring, they’re happy and rejuvenated. They won one game out of five and scored four in their last game.
“Wits have been strong. You can’t stay at the top for that long and you aren’t a good team. I am happy. Ever since I have been here in the last five years, it’s either we’re first or second. We’re back to where we have been in the last five years. That shows we’re a good team.
