Mamelodi Sundowns are on the verge of clinching their fifth consecutive DSTV Premiership title and 15th overall should they avoid defeat in their league game against Cape Town City at the Loftus stadium Wednesday night 27 April.

Speaking to SAFM Sport On earlier this week, Sundowns co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi said they will have to console themselves with the league title following their exit in the CAF Champions League this past weekend, after they were knocked out by Angolan side Petro de Luanda in the quarterfinals.

Mngqithi says they want nothing less than a win against City: “I don’t want to lie to you for us a draw is not something we are looking for. We have a responsibility to try and win every match we play at Sundowns and we still have a responsibility to better our best performances, last season we at 67 points in total and we must still push harder to that 67 before we can even talk about getting to 70 or 72 its very important that we try and win all the matches that we are going to play and we will give it our best shot, we know it’s not on lost we have a big responsibility to focus in the next two competitions and try to help the team to succeed”

Coming to last weekend’s game against Petro de Luanda, the talk was always about the quadruple but now the focus moves to winning a domestic treble as Sundowns are still involved in the Nedbank Cup as well, after having won the MTN8 title earlier this season. And Mngqithi has no doubt that they can achieve that.
