Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Denis Onyango took one for the group with the pink card he had to concede within the demise moments of Mamelodi Sundowns' 2-zero win against Sekhukhune United on Saturday and saved the Brazilians from considering a goal, he wanted to continue with the clean sheet, and not repeating same mistakes from Supersport United.

Downs co-coach Rulani Mokwena stated the system of errors by way of which Onyango turned into positioned underneath strain at Tuks Stadium again demonstrates how goalkeepers because the last man are not necessarily at fault even if they make mistakes. Mokwena had defended Onyango in midweek whilst the big Ugandan keeper's mistakes performed a role in Sundowns spurning a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 towards SuperSport United.

Towards Sekhukhune on Saturday, Onyango had almost no desire however to foul alternative Tshediso Patjie out of doors the box as the striker sped through on my own after intercepting Mosa Lebusa's returned-bypass. “a variety of people will communicate about the pink card, however the truth is — and that i constantly say it to the gamers — there are likely five or six mistakes leading as much as the larger error,” Mokwena stated. “Even against SuperSport every person speaks approximately Denis but I may want to inform you approximately Khuliso Mudau's marking, the foul that Thabiso Kutumela makes that he shouldn't. And if you do not make that foul you do not get the possibilities of conceding the purpose.

“Even [on Saturday] it is a simple scenario wherein we ought to development with the ball thru the midfield and there is no cause the skip must pass again to grant Kekana, and then again to 'AJ' [Andile Jali], after which even lower back to Mosa.

“And while we visit Mosa, who without a doubt thinks the pass have to visit Denis in that second because there are strikers, and the one striker's a piece hidden on his shoulder, the skip catches him unaware. And you could certainly see with the body role that he changed into not anticipating the bypass. but it comes, and then he's were given to devote himself and try to solve the hassle of getting an aggressive striker.

“and that is element and parcel of playing for Sundowns. when you are a centre-lower back for Sundowns you have to have the potential to play underneath pressure, and assist the group now not just maintain ownership however progress towards the goal of the opposition with the skip. And he couldn't do this. after which of route the error that compromised Denis. And from the compromised situation it is very difficult to make any other selection [for Onyango] besides perhaps to try and guide.

“but the striker is long past and it becomes a scenario, but if you do not get Onyango into that compromise then you definitely do not have the purple card.

“but this is wherein we are at Mamelodi Sundowns — we make errors and lead them to collectively, and take ownership of these. it is the model of play we've advanced and we've all everyday that that is how we want to play — we want to construct from the again because we are a large team. in case you don't construct from the returned maybe you don't have the 70% ownership we had, then maybe you do not create the chances we did and feature the clean sheet.

“The strengths of a positive model of play provide you with opportunities to govern the situation, create probabilities and use the ball well. on the identical time that if you have the ball in and round your very last 0.33 there may be an element of chance involved. guy town and Chelsea build the equal, huge teams have this character and stick very closely to their profile.”

Sundowns' win left the 4-time successive champions nine factors clean as they face Stellenbosch FC subsequent at Danie Craven Stadium on Saturday.
