Pitso Mosimane is aware that Mamelodi Sundowns have a chance to win the treble this season, but says it is not a priority to win all competitions in one season.

Before the lockdown, Sundowns were in the semifinals of the Nedbank Cup and were four points behind log leaders Kaizer Chiefs with one game in hand.

Mosimane is quoted as saying by IOL Sport: “Yes, there’s that opportunity. We are already in the semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup and then you say, ‘can we win the league?’ Yes, we can, why not? We’ve won the Telkom Knockout. If we can win the Telkom, why don’t we believe that we can win the Nedbank? It is the same way, you have to find your way through. If you believe, you can do it.

“What is more pleasing for me at this point time is that I got other players back to shape and are now back playing in the mainstream. You know a player like Andile Jali, he is back to his best now. It took him a while to get into the right path. There’s a lot of issues that he needed to be supported on.

“Then there was this opportunity for this treble again. Orlando Pirates did a double-treble, but you don’t want to compare. At the end of the day, a treble is a treble; ours included a continental title.

“We’ve got to work for it. It is not easy, but if you are going to focus on it, you may end up losing everything. Our focus before lockdown was Pirates.”

Prior to the lockdown, Sundowns were scheduled to play Orlando Pirates next.
