- The all-conquering Mamelodi Sundowns has an itch that it desperately wants to scratch again
- Bafana Ba Style have thoroughly dominated South African football, but continue to fluff their CAF Champions League lines
- Head coach Rhulani Mokwena has now openly admitted that this is a source of irritation considering the size and quality of the squad
Mamelodi Sundowns is failing in its quest for more CAF Champions League glory.
This is the stark admission that was made by head coach Rhulani Mokwena ahead of a new season of the competition.
Bafana Ba Style won their only title in this tournament in 2016 but have failed to replicate this achievement, considering their squad is composed with the intent of at least making the semifinals and/or winning.
According to IOL, Mokwena said:

“[To win the Champions League] has always been the aim, drive and focus of the club. That’s why if we don’t get close to that, for me, it’s a failure,” he said. "The club wants to be there where we are competing and want to win games. We’ll go again, and try our level best to be in a space to win in the end.”
“Competitions like the Champions League [do not begin] when you play the semi-final or the final. Matches of consequence are won in the first game of pre-season and the league where you start plotting a winning mentality going into the season."
Sundowns is seeking its second star above the club's badge, and will begin their quest when facing La Passe from the Seychelles at Loftus Versfeld on Sunday afternoon, as per SowetanLIVE.
