Mamelodi Sundowns managed to find a pitch to train on in Morocco after Wydad Casablanca failed to organise a training field for the visiting side.

Mamelodi Sundowns are preparing to take on Moroccan club Wydad Casablanca in the second leg of the Quarter-final clash on Saturday at the Stade Mohamed V.

The African Champions will train at the Stade du FUS in Rabat, Morocco.

Sundowns tweeted a picture of their training ground in Morocco, following Wydad’s failure to organise one in time.

“We have been around Rabat, looking all over for a pitch to train on. It looks like we will get FUS Rabat’s stadium. It tests your character as a club, and we have been through this before. When we are up against the odds, we always come out tops,” Thuswa told KickOff.

He added: “Sundowns are not crybabies. We are here, we have a capable team and we will do our best to make it comfortable for the side and easy on the technical team. The coach is doing fine. We are all mature about this. As long as we find a solution in the end.”
