Sundowns were forced to make the move to Lucas Moripe Stadium and Loftus Versfeld after HM Pitje Stadium fell into a state of disrepair.

Mosimane strongly feels that a move back one day would result in the team regularly playing in front of capacity crowds.

Mosimane recalled, “I used to play at HM Pitje as a Sundowns player many years ago and it was always full. You must remember that the population of Mamelodi over time has probably tripled.”
