Sundowns’ busy schedule their biggest test of the season
“We’ve just received the news that the 9pm flight that we had booked has been cancelled because of the curfew and so now we’re trying to get into the 8pm flight.” Mamelodi Sundowns coach Manqoba Mngqithi said as quoted by TimesLIVE.
“If we manage to get the 8pm flight it will be very good for us but I just imagine a situation where maybe 8pm flights were fully booked then are forced to come back on Sunday. On Monday we have to go to Botswana. We decided to go on Monday because of the circumstances of Covid-19 protocols‚ a 48 hour test and all those things.
“So that also puts a spanner in the works but the team is used to these challenges. We fully understand our space and we’re more than optimistic that we’ll come out strong with all these challenges.”
