Mamelodi Sundowns have secured their fifth consecutive DStv Premiership title despite being held to a 0-0 draw by Cape Town City FC at Loftus Versfeld on Wednesday night.

Sundowns came into the game fully aware that a point would be enough to retain the championship. Masandawana have summated 58 points, 13 points clear of second place, Royal AM with only 12 points left to play for, from 26 games. They won 17 games, drawn 7 games, and lost just two games.

Sundowns Co-Coach, Rulani attributed the championship to a collective effort and indicated that it shows the collectiveness and the spirit that is within the club.

“It would be improper not to start off by congratulating the Mamelodi Sundowns football club. Congratulations to the board, to the Motsepe family, the president, senior management, backroom staff, and everybody involved in this success. Mokwena said.

“These types of achievement particularly because it’s the fifth one in a row cannot be attributed only to one individual, but to a collective and it shows the collectiveness and the spirit that is within the club. Congratulations to the supporters, I think this one is a little bit special for them because they missed out on last season’s celebrations.

“To be a part of the journey this season I think is very special for them, and then congratulations also to the technical team, coach Steve Komphela, coach Manqoba Mngqithi and coach Wendell Robinson and the rest of our technical staff – our bios, conditioning coaches, our analysts, our ground staff, logistics team and everyone involved.”

“A special word of congratulations to the players, you run out of superlatives to try to describe them, what they showed today is exactly a reflection of who they are; honest, hardworking, and extremely diligent, a pleasure to coach. It is not easy to lose a Champions League game, to be so broken the way we were and then come and show this type of spirit and performance. Normally some teams would crumble after such a setback, but they were strong, they showed good perseverance and it is this resilience that makes them so special. They’ve had a season that’s better than last season already, we are very proud of them, and I am sure the Sundowns fans are also very proud of them.”

Sundowns will have a chance to another trophy to their cabinet as they are in the semi-finals of Nedbank Cup. They will play Royal AM away in KwaZulu Natal on Saturday, 30 April.
