The Brazilians continue to fight for major trophies on all fronts, and Mabunda tells Goal that they're on course to defend their titles this season

Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Tiyani Mabunda tells Goal that fatigue shouldn't be a major factor for them despite their hectic schedule.

“It’s what we expected as a team, but we have been in this situation before. We have been through the same situation last season and we managed to do well,” Mabunda told Goal.

“We managed to win the required cups we competed in and I believe we are still on course to retain all the trophies we won and we are aiming to add more to the cabinet,” Mabunda said.

The 28-year-old was a key figure alongside captain Hlompho Kekana as Sundowns conquered Africa last year.

Mabunda is aware that they should improve their game if they want to emulate their last season's success.

“Look, it’s not an easy situation to be in, but we are willing to do more because of what lies ahead of us this season,” Mabunda said.

The Limpopo-born midfielder has featured 22 times in all competitions for Sundowns this season with a goal to his name.
