The Tshwane giants are currently top of the Premier Soccer League (PSL) table with a five-point lead over closest rivals Orlando Pirates. Sundowns most recently put on an impressive display against Cape Town City ending the Cape side’s hoodoo over them, with star player Tau putting on a masterclass as he assisted Khama Billiat for the winner.
Following the win, Tau stated that Sundowns have learnt from their previous mistakes and believes that this time around they can clinch the domestic league title.
“Last season we lost the league in our last three games,” Tau told SuperSport TV.
“We are trying to improve on that and we are much stronger now. We have new signings that are helping us so hopefully we will work hard and win the league.
“We need to keep on going. We are still going to have tough games,” he added.
Meanwhile, Tau admitted that City put on a good fight on Friday night, but believes that Sundowns were well worth the three points.
“We knew it was not going to be easy,” he said.
“They were playing at home and have beaten us in the last three games. We knew that they were going to give us a hard time, they are second on the log. We had to being in our A game and it worked out. I think we really worked hard and this is the reward of the hard work,” he concluded.
Sundowns’ attention now shifts to the Nedbank Cup. The Brazilians are scheduled to travel to Cape Town as they prepare to take on Cape Town All Stars this coming weekend, before resuming their league campaign against Free State Stars.
