Log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns have made their vision clear this seasn, eying a 2nd continental crown and adding another CAF star to their collection becoming the first team in South Africa to win the CAF champions league twice.
It has been about 5 seasons since they last lifted the trophy and they are not looking to be on a CAF trophy drought.
Mamelodi Sundowns have been heavily criticized with the squad depth they are building but they responded with a valid reason. Their aim is to have a large strong squad that can compete in local football and rotate in continental football. Injuries are a common problem in football and having a good squad depth can limit the uncertainties of struggling with a starting line up.
