Coach Pitso Mosimane believes that Mamelodi Sundowns can emulate Orlando Pirates and win the Caf Champions League title.

Sundowns were knocked out of the competition at the first time of asking under Mosimane’s mentorship by Congolese giants TP Mazembe.

Mosimane is confident that his team will have a better showing this time around.

“I am so happy with the team, the board has entrusted me with this team, and the players are responding well and we are winning trophies. I need to put a star on top on the badge of Sundowns and it’s possible.”

The Brazilians have shown a great vein of form in the first half of the season, winning the Telkom Knockout Cup and throwing their name in the hat for the league title.

“We think it’s that time of the year. You can’t go once and want to win. You must go once, twice, three times. I mean Orlando Pirates went to the finals again after they won, so we need to go again, as long as we are playing in the space of Champions League all the time, we have an opportunity.”
