Mokwena wary of dogged Matsatsantsa

“SuperSport are probably the one team who are profiled very close to the profile of its manager,” Mamelodi Sundowns coach Rhulani Mokwena told the Masandawana media team.

“Probably the one team that adopts the personality of its coach, Kaitano being a very good coach who has come through the structures at SuperSport United to become the head coach. He’s always had teams which are just as aggressive and mentally strong as he was as a football player, very difficult to break down.

“They’ve had a very decent start to the season like us (Mamelodi Sundowns), quietly gone about their business with a lot of tactical flexibility. They maybe look to overload the midfield with an extra midfielder like [Jamie] Webber. And then you’ve got really different challenges against a midfield three in relation to when you play against a midfield two of [Teboho] Mokoena and [Sipho] Mbule for example. When they overload the midfield then you’ve got to look for other areas where you can look for spaces.”
