For Mamelodi Sundowns they are not quite used to not having things go their way as they are always used to getting their way one way or another whether it be because of transfers or on the pitch during match days
But as of late Mamelodi Sundowns are showing they are not quite invincible in their previous two encounters against Stellenbosch FC and Royal AM as they have stumbled a bit against both of those teams in the DSTV Premiership
Normally not only are Mamelodi Sundowns extremely dangerous in the offensive phase of the game but they are also very solid in the defensive phase of the game because they are a complete team hence why they win trophies
And it is for that exact same reason that Mamelodi Sundowns do not concede goals on a consistent basis but they also score goals on a consistent basis with all the resources that they have at their disposal
But of course lately they have not been getting their way exactly as no matter how good you are as a football team you are always bound to have those certain moments in a season where you have what they call in football a blip or a dip in form
Although yesterday evening Mamelodi Sundowns managed to grab a very close victory against Royal AM in a game that ended 3-2 in favor of the brazilians as they extended their lead at the top of the DSTV Premiership
But strangely enough despite Mamelodi Sundowns winning the game Rhulani Mokwena was not so pleased with himself and his fellow colleagues revealing a lack of preparation leading up to the game according to & courtesy of reports from SoccerLaduma
"Don't get me wrong, the players were very good on the pitch. They did the best that they could, they ran and worked hard in and out of possession,"
"You can't ask for more - what I am saying is that this one is on us coaches because we were not well prepared in the structure,"
The Mamelodi Sundowns top boss also went on to say.....
"We changed the system today, we went back to a back three and we tried to use our lateral centre halves to control the half spaces from Ndumiso Mabena and Tebogo Potsane,"
