This is the toughest match of the season – Mancoba
“This match is probably one of the toughest games we can expect.” Mamelodi Sundowns coach Manqoba Mnqgithi told Sowetan.
“Cape Town City has been growing like yeast since last season. By KPI, they probably should have been number two, if not number three.
“So that already shows that they deserve to be where they are. A team that could easily be where it is, was [Orlando] Pirates.
“But, unfortunately, they didn’t score the goals they were hoping for.
“If you look at the game between Orlando Pirates and Cape Town City, even Mamelodi Sundowns, you will see that Pirates deserve to be in a higher position.
But Cape Town City looked very good and progressed very well throughout the season.”
