Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has told the club website that he is surprised that the Brazilians are amongst the top teams in the fourth quarter (Q4) of the PSL season.
Jingles revealed that he took it one game at a time and that he was not thinking about winning the Q4 innovation, as the team is still trying to get as many points as possible to stay within the top eight.
“I was told by one of the players that we are in with a chance of winning the Q4 innovation and I was quite surprised, because that has never been on my mind,” said Mosimane.

The coach is hopeful of Sundowns’ success in the upcoming season and he believes that qualifying for the top eight will help them realize the dream of ending their five-season drought of trophies.
“We would like to start competing for titles next season and a top eight finish (now) presents us with that opportunity,” he said.
The former SuperSport United and Bafana coach added that Sundowns will walk away victorious in their last game against Bidvest Wits and reflected on his words when he said that the Brazilians are capable of winning all their remaining games.

“When I said we could go on and win all our remaining games and win all our last four matches, some people thought that I was out of emotions or arrogance, but that was not the case,” added Mosimane.
Sundowns have now won their last three games in succession and a win against Wits will guarantee them a top eight finish and a prizemoney of R1.5 million for topping the Q4 standings, should Platinum Stars and Bloemfontein Celtic drop points.
