The Mamelodi Sundowns have managed to emerge as the victors of the ABSA Premiership Final champions
- Coach Pitso Mosimane says the moment is an emotional victory after facing immense pressure
- Fans of the Kaizer Chiefs were left bitterly disappointed after the title was snatched away from them
The Mamelodi Sundowns have managed to secure there spot as the ABSA Premiership 2020 champions.
However, this win was not an easy one with their opponents, Kaizer Chiefs, giving the team a run for their money.
Pitso Mosimane weighed in on the victory saying that it is undeniably an emotional moment for him:
"Of course, very emotional. It was difficult because we never had a chance. The boys have some character and they play every week. I'm too demanding, some run away because I'm too much for them. I'm very emotional about this one."
The coach revealed that the journey leading up to this moment had been extremely difficult for both the team and himself personally.
Commenting on the situation following the win, Mosimane said there had been plenty of doubt along the way:
"A lot of people didn't believe, only the yellow nation who come here every time those are the people that support us. I must thank my family, they were there with me through difficult times. We had a lot of pressure both outside and internal in the club, to be honest, people doubting me, but God is there for me. These boys made it possible for me to look back at those people and say 'what do you have to say now?'"
