Masadawana defeated the Pirates three times last season, including a 4-1 victory in the Durbank Cup clash
Mamelodi Sundowns co-head coach Rulani Mokwena said they were not at their best before Saturday’s game against the Orlando Pirates.
Although Masandawana got off to a good start in their PSL campaign, because they achieved 3 wins and 1 tie in the first four games, ranking first in the standings.
The Tshwane Giants defeated the hapless TS Galaxy team 3-0 in the last league game over the weekend, but Mokwena was not satisfied because he said they wanted to dominate the game.
“Since we have won a few games, we can’t start singing different songs. We knew from the first game that we would not be in the best condition in the early stages, which is still obvious,” Mokwiener told the media .
“We are still playing well in the patch, but we don’t want a competitive team. We want a dominant team. We are currently showing this. We still want to play a perfect game. competition.
“Perhaps perfection does not exist, but the desire to be perfect is very important, because when you pursue perfection, even if you do not achieve it, you will reach an excellent level, which is what we want.
“We want every pass to be perfect, every build is perfect, every plan is perfect. We want to be a difficult team to deal with.”
The Sunset team will face the Buccaneers at the Orlando Stadium, the mecca of South African football. The Buccaneers also remain unbeaten in the league this season.
The Buccaneers hope to challenge the PSL title this season, and they are currently ranked fourth in the league standings-two points behind defending champion Sundowns.
“We don’t want a team to play Mamelodi Sundowns and think it will be a walk in the park. The league is a marathon. We must be professional, we must be hardworking,” Mokwena added.
“Now everything is for rest and recovery, and then we will analyze our game and check the corrections, and then prepare for a very difficult game with the Orlando Pirates. They are a very good team.”
