CAPE TOWN – Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane was reflective mood after his team after their 10th title win on Saturday.

Masandwana managed to close the 13 point gap to ensure they retained the title for a third season and write their name in the history books at the expense of Kaizer Chiefs.

Amakhosi looked to finally break their title drought but weren’t able to get over the final hurdle when they played to a 1-1 draw against Baroka FC which saw their rivals snatch the trophy away on the final day thanks to a Lebohang Maboe hat-trick.

Speaking to SuperSport in post-match interview the Sundowns coach said this title win didn’t come easy.

“It was difficult because we never had a chance, we only had one and a half hours when Chiefs lost to Wits, that was the only sniff we had.”

Mosimane was very sombre after the victory saying it was very emotional.

“To be honest, I am not very excited like when we won it against Free State Stars, I am little bit emotional on this one because of many many important things inside that makes me very, very emotional to be honest and sometimes a little bit sad but it’s ok, I won the trophy.“

On Saturday, Sundowns will meet Bloemfontein Celtic in the final of South Africa’s premier club knockout competition where they could record their first ever treble, after winning the Telkom Knockout and Premiership title.
