I would not be concerned by injuries if i had a star studded team like Sundowns [OPINION]

Mamelodi Sundowns are by far the team of the moment, they have a good organizational structure for all their teams.

Whether it is the senior team or the iDiski super team or even the ladies team, you see a team with discipline, dedication and humility.

The senior team that almost signs quality players every season is by far the only team with such a depth in their team. Mamelodi Sundowns have almost three players for each position in the team.

Excuses from Rulani

The Mamelodi Sundowns coach Rulani Mokwena says it is avery, very difficult situation with Bafana claiming they can't even communicate with the medical department.

Rulani says they don't know the itinerary of Bafana and they don't know the training programme of Bafana.

But what is the point of having a big squad if you will complain about few injuries?

He further went to say that they don't get training feedback in relation to the [player training] load, there's no data.

He says the cooperation with Bafana frustrates us a little bit. Because as Mamelodi Sundowns they are the first to always over the years shown willingness to support the nation.

He says they support the cause and release as plenty personnel including support structures from Sundowns going to represent the national team.

More excuses from Mokwena

"It's a bit disappointing that even in the previous camp Thapelo [Morena] returned injured. He's not back yet and we're still trying to get him back into the groove by giving him a couple of minutes today.

"Of course he has returned to fitness, returned to training and playing but at the moment he still isn't in the right competitive shape to be ready.

"Then you have the situation of Mothobi Mvala who is so important for us, particularly for this African sojourn and this assignment with his physicality.

"With also his ability to win aerial duels and his ability to control and give us a bit more competitiveness in midfield.

"Then he comes back from Bafana and he's injured you know, then also Rushine de Reuck in our previous match against Swallows doesn't finish the game as a precautionary measure.

"Due to a muscular complication but then he continues to play for Bafana Bafana. Thabiso Kutumela also comes back and he's jaded and is overloaded and comes back and struggles with his performance.

"These are some of the things that disappoint us but okay it is what it is, you have to continue supporting the national cause." - Rulani Mokwena
