Mokwena revealed that Sibusiso Vilakazi is the one who told TS Galaxy their style of play because he used to be one of them. Vilakazi trained with them at the start of the transfer window.
“You could see that having had Vila trained with us, [he’s] a very intelligent person. He trained with us the entire pre-season, [which] played a little bit into their advantage because he has so much intel.
He added that they knew almost all the loopholes of Sundowns because of him.
“They knew 150% the weaknesses of our team. But be that as it may, we could’ve played better. We know that we can play better."
The 35-year-old mentor also urged the club's supporters to get behind them more in the midst of this adversity as that could also be a significant contribution whenever they try to work their way back into games.
Meanwhile, Sundown's loss hass sparked a debate on social media. Many supporterd and fans cannot believe what has happened and the team has been trending.
"I think you Kaizer Chiefs people and your admin should relax and rest. I don't understand why so much noise. I mean u guys lost and Sundowns lost. Don't u think u should wait till u play each other. Noisy people for nothing. One game it's like u won the league already," wrote a user.
Rulani can do better. Does this mean that the trio use only one system of play or he just had to say something to justify the loss?
