Tiyani Mabunda and Elias Pelembe - Mamelodi Sundowns v Bidvest Wits.
In an exclusive interview with Goal, Masinga marveled at how Mosimane has been successfully built a strong team with quality and depth all departments

Legendary Mamelodi Sundowns striker Phil Masinga tells Goal that he enjoys watching his former club the same way he enjoys watching Spanish giants Barcelona.

“I think Sundowns have got a good football philosophy. When you look at how Sundowns play, you don’t want the game to stop. It’s like watching Barcelona,” Masinga told Goal .

The Brazilians walked away 2-0 winners against the title rivals Bidvest Wits on Saturday night.

“The way their players are making runs off the ball and the support they are getting, Pitso (Mosimane) has managed to combine classy players for them to play together and they understand each other,” Masinga said.

Despite the absence of Khama Billiat, Anthony Laffor and Anele Ngcongca through injuries, Sundowns still played like an oiled machine against the Students.

Masinga feels their quality and depth in all departments make them unstoppable. 

“To think from the Platinum Stars game they made six changes says a lot about the depth of Sundowns. It doesn’t even effect the team and their way of playing. They are still doing the same thing from what they were doing in midweek and in other games,” Masinga concluded.
