Reigning DStv Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns continued their league dominance when they defeated Royal AM 2-0 at the Harry Gwala stadium last night. Peter Shalulile and Lesiba Nku were the men on target to ensure that The Brazilians continue their quest of winning the league without a defeat.

The Chloorkop based side once again continued breaking their own record as last night’s victory against Thwihli Thwahla saw them go 50 games unbeaten in the league with their last defeat dating back to the 2nd of September 2022 when they were stunned 2-1 by city rivals Supersport United, with the management deciding to do away with the co-coaching arrangement thereafter.

Sundowns are still in a quest of beating yet another one of their records as they currently sit on 69 points and with three games to go, they stand to beat their last season’s league points tally of 70. Downs coach Rhulani Mokwena says that his record-breaking Sundowns will be long remembered.

“History has no blank pages and there is going to be something written about this group. I don’t know what will be written but there will be something written about this group.”

“I am also an avid animal or nature type of person and I watch a lot of national geographics. I watch a lot of things about nature and conservation and what happens in wildlife”, Mokwena further explained about the lack of appreciation from the larger public for Sundowns.

“There is an interesting story of the crow and the eagle and if you go into it you will find that the crow is always on the back of the eagle and biting its neck but the eagle never fights back. What the eagle does is that it ascends to even greater heights up until the crow loses oxygen and starts to fall off and that for me is a bit of a lesson in life.”

“You may have people on your back, maybe not appreciating or maybe talking negatively about you but the reality is what you should be doing is instead of using energy to fight those people, you should be like the eagle and ascend to even greater heights because eventually you get to a point where you are so high that they can’t maintain it anymore and they start to fall off”, Mokwena concluded.

Sundowns will travel to The Cape to face 2nd placed Stellenbosch FC at the Athlone stadium on Saturday, then travel to Mbombela stadium to lock horns with TS Galaxy and then conclude their league campaign with a home fixture against Cape Town City at the Loftus Versfeld stadium.
