Mamelodi Sundowns Head Coach Pitso Mosimane aims high against the Spanish giants Real Madrid ahead of the FIFA Club World Cup Japan 2016.
Mosimane ‘The first Black South African coach to win the CAF Champions league’ is already planning for star-sudden “Los Blancos”:
Maybe if we go through and play Real Madrid one day – because it is a dream – maybe we will park the bus there, not now.
“We never park the bus, we went to ES Setif (Algeria) and never parked the bus, why should we park the bus now? We don’t park the bus…we play! Maybe if we go through and play Real Madrid one day – because it is a dream – maybe we will park the bus there, not now.” said Pitso Mosimane
The reigning Premier League(PSL) champions Mamelodi Sundowns “The Brazilians” brought a second continental star home after beating Cairo giants Zamalek 3-1 on aggregate in a CAF Champions Leage Final played in two legs.
Sundowns will be the first South African club to play on the global stage after qualifying for the FIFA Club World Cup Japan 2016.
The President of the South African Football Association(SAFA) Danny Jordaan believes the ‘Brazilians’ have what it takes to proudly represent the continent in Japan.
“This victory will serve South African football very well and will help in building a competitive Bafana Bafana side. South Africa stands tall on the African continent once again. Well done.
President Jacob Zuma was the first to congratulate the team.
“It is indeed a glorious moment in South Africa and we congratulate Mamelodi Sundowns players, technical team and its entire management for representing us very well in this historically difficult continental championship and earned South Africa another star.”
