Rulani Praises Downs Stars After Chiefs Mauling

Rulani Praises Downs Stars After Chiefs Mauling

After their 4-0 victory over Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday afternoon Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Rhulani Mokwena commended two players.

With a decisive victory over the Chiefs at Loftus Versfeld, the Brazilians made up for their defeat to TS Galaxy.

Themba Zwane and Neo Maema, in Mokwena's opinion, made a strong impression on the Soweto giants that day.

A communal approach, collective performance—not just from Peter or Nasir but especially from Mshishi [Zwane]—was fantastic. Positionally, Mshishi excelled and was quite good. After the game, Mokwena spoke to SuperSport and said, I believe this was Neo [Maemabest ]'s tactical effort.

[Aubrey] Modiba occupied the appropriate posts, We needed him to be somewhat nearer to AJ [Andile Jali] so that [Khuliso] Mudau could be slightly elevated.

And because we wanted [Teboho Mokoena] Tebza to be a little bit wider and Mudau to be a little bit higher we also needed that.

As a result we needed AJ to have a little bit more protection from Neo which is why I say Neo was amazing. The greatest player on the field right now tactically.

He said No good save from Ronwen when questioned about Ronwen Williams' influence Rushine and Brian (Onyango) put on a steady performance (De Reuck).

Given that they overload the midfield and hunt for opportunities for Khama to dodge which he is quite adept at doing our rest defense was relatively strong.

The disappointment was that we gave up a penalty in a circumstance that we were aware of. Rushine could have done a little bit better when they attempted to release Khama, but it is still very early in the season.

We will inevitably make errors but the most important thing is that we learn from them and move forward.
