Sundowns lament Maboe, Kekana Absences: This Is What Mokoena Said

 On Sunday, ruling DStv Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns opened their 2021/22 Champions League crusade with a 2-2 attract away to Congo's Maniema Union the principal leg of their subsequent passing round experience. 

Masandawana, who are yet to surrender in six homegrown matches this season, were the predominant group against their unfamiliar adversaries in any case left with just a portion of the focuses after a unique showcase in guard. 

Co-mentor Mokwena was in any case satisfied with his side's exhibition in spite of the fact that he bemoaned the unlucky deficiencies of protector Grant Kekana and Lebohang Manyama, the last of whom could miss the rest of the period subsequent to going through knee medical procedure in August. 

"Obviously, we miss Lebo," Mokwena said this at the interview. As you can see in the picture below.

"Everyone knows the effect Lebo gives and the energy that he acquires the midfield, especially in rounds of this nature in the Champions League where we need somewhat more legs to shut down spaces and where we play against extremely strong and vivacious resistance. 

"You need excellent counter-squeezing and the capacity to get an additional a man from midfield into the assaulting third, and ordinarily Lebo gives us that so we are missing him there" 

"We have a slight circumstance with Grant Kekana. He's been vital for us this season and one of the players who have assisted us with holding clean sheets inside the guarded lines, so we missed him today."

This shows that coach rhulani mokwena was missing this players. That is because these players have a great room at mamelodi sundowns. As they always know how to maintain and help the team to keep the clean sheets.

In that case currently we don't know if maybe their absence has caused the whole team to draw. Because if they were available they wouldn't have contributed to the defence.
