- PSL champions Mamelodi Sundowns arrived in Morocco on Tuesday ahead of their CAF Champions League match against Wydad Casablanca
- Sundowns were forced to travel to France to take a connecting flight to Casablanca
- The Brazilians shared some behind-the-scenes footage of their travels
Mamelodi Sundowns may be the current kings of Mzansi football, but are focused on making their mark in the rest of Africa.
The team are braced for an important contest against Wydad Casablanca of Morocco in the CAF Champions League.
The Brazilians first travelled to Paris to catch a connecting flight as they're unable to fly to Morocco directly.
The lengthy commute must take its toll on the players, but it also provided more moments that could be caught on camera.
Sundowns shared some of the photos and a video clip from their travels and shared it via Twitter.
While the Sundowns faithful couldn't hide their excitement for Saturday's crunch match, Briefly.co.za gathered that they were unimpressed by the commuting challenges.
Dumolwakhe Mbobo (@DumolwakheM) called for a no-nonsense approach:
"A game we must use to send out a strong message to the rest of the continent. No playing for a draw please. I we are to be feared, we need to instil fear on everyone."
(@_SonOfMars) criticised the structure of the CAF tournaments:
"It's really STUPID that we have to fly to Europe first only to fly back to the continent. This is why we'll never reach UEFA CL standards. Africa is too large a place. Imagine being a fan trying to go watch a match in Morocco."
Tumodi S'kokotla (@Mphahleletk) was left in disbelief:
"Travelling in Africa is a nightmare, because for one to reach African more so in the north, you will have to go via Europe. How insane and backward is this?"
