Mamelodi Sundowns will be looking for a much improved performance in the second round of the PSL season, following a successful camp that they had in Zimbabwe.
Sundowns did not have the best start to the 2012/13 PSL season and had to fire coach Johan Neeskens after their Telkom Knockout final defeat to Bloem Celtic toward the end of last year.
“The team is back from Zimbabwe and the camp went very well. We are ready for the second round of the season,” said Kabelo Mosito.
The Brazilians were not active in the market during the January transfer window, but Mosito has told Goal.com that the technical team, headed by Pitso Mosimane, is happy with the squad.
Mosimane promised to give every player an opportunity to shine while he is still in charge, and it did not come as a surprise when he brought Ramahlwe Mphahlele back from his loan spell at Tuks.
“We didn’t sign any player as you know. We are very happy with the players we have,” said Mosito.
He added: “We have quality players who are very talented and we want to give them a chance to show what they are made of,” he added.
Despite coming back earlier than the rest of the squad, Sundowns captain Teko Modise is deemed fit to face Kaizer Chiefs at Loftus Stadium next week Tuesday.
Modise has apparently not been offered an extension to his current contract that is set to expire in June, but reports suggest that Sundowns are willing to hold onto the former PSL footballer of the year, and that he will be offered a two-year extension.
