"The work ethic has been extremely pleasing and the players are looking sharp and good," said Mokwena.

IOL reports that part of the pre-season objective and goal, according to Rulani Mokwena, was to prepare the team to be a "nightmare" for opponents in the next season.

"We want to create a team that is a nightmare to play against. A team that can hurt opponents in different ways, and we have got to create a culture for that," he said.

The new season begins for Mamelodi Sundowns on Sunday at the Lucas Moripe Stadium, where they will face Kaizer Chiefs in an MTN8 quarter-final match.
