Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Rhulani Mokwena insists they are taking one game at a time despite the great run of form. 

Sundowns have only lost once in their last 14 matches in all competitions. That was in the MTN8 semifinal against Orlando Pirates at Peter Mokaba Stadium. 

They have now gone eight matches without dropping any point in the DStv Premiership, conceding just one goal in the process. 

“We just have to go one game at a time. That’s what we are doing,” said coach Rhulani Mokwena. 

“We are just going one game at a time trying to do our best to continue to win. So far eight in a row. Conceded one in eight. Everybody thinks it’s easy and that’s when it’s actually very difficult.

“I can not not speak about it if I don’t mention how impressed and proud of the players I am as they coach,” he said. 


“I am proud of this group and huge kudos. I hope that’s what makes the headlines for the next two days that Rulani is proud of the Sundowns players and not the other staff because the game of football belongs to the players.” 


Mokwena also paid his last respects to the late Premier Soccer League marketing advisor Peter ‘Squire’ Mancer who passed away earlier this week. 

“Sincere condolences once again to the Peter Mancer family and the South African football fraternity at large. I was fortunate enough to have a few interactions with him and what an incredible gentleman.

“Flamboyant and with presence. That’s why they say good human beings of legends don’t die. Their spirit continues to live in the hearts and the memories of those who they have touched. That is why each and every single one of you can come up with superlites,” he said.
