Orlando Pirates coach Fadlu Davids has rejected that Mamelodi Sundowns are automatic favourites for every trophy despite his side's 2-0 defeat in a DStv Premiership clash.Namibian striker Peter Shalulile scored a brace to give the Brazilians a crucial victory over their title rivals at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday.
Sundowns maintained their lead at the top of the standings as they look to extend their domestic dominance over the rest of the league.
Despite their defeat, Davids insisted that Sundowns cannot automatically be seen as overwhelming favourites for every trophy this season.
The league is not won after a result like today," Davids said post-match.Sundowns cannot put their name on each trophy especially with us as a brand as Orlando Pirates we are going to fight for each trophy that's available.
I know, Orlando pirates is big team, but you can't play one view one against sundowns, I don't blame them for parking bus.He is still bitter and in denial,just give him 2 days,he will be the one who says Downs are favourite to win every trophy.
Sundown will rule SA soccer for the next 60 years until Khoza and Motaung accept that their ideas are expired. Sundowns have stuck to their culture for decades. Their style of play never changes. Their management is full of Sundowns legends.
When they scout players, they scout those that fit their style. With us Pirates, our culture was speed. Remember, Brendan Silent, Josep Ngake, Tlou Segolela, Heilman Mkhalele etc. We have lost that culture. Our legends are not involved in the current team.
Whoever is scout for new players is blind. How do you buy new players all the way from Ghana and Nigeria then bench them. Why buy them. Who is the head coach? What's the role of Screamer? What's the vision for Khoza.
Sundowns is already champions ,can Pirates win Nedbank the answer is nooooo Dunu will hammer us again as for CAF Rajaa will give us 4 l think we must fight top 8 and forget about a cup under those Local Sugarcane farmers.
They must reject it the field of play not with interviews! They were too defensive and only attacked after sundowns had scored.They wanted a draw and it backfired! Sundowns is making sure hore they collect points from soweto teams and they are very consistent on dealing with the so called small teams.
