Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Rulani Mokwena is very vocal on the timeline when it comes to football. This time, the coach has decided to talk about his thoughts on European football and he started a discussion on how South African football compares.

"The level of football being played in Europe currently is extremely scary... Unbelievably top-level technical execution, consistently, with clear schemes under sustained match intensity... Ridiculous," said Mokwena.

"What will it take for SA players to attain those levels!? We now have similar resources at our disposal. What's stopping us from reaching those levels?"

"We don`t have to attain their levels. We just have to play our way. Why do we all have to be like them Europeans."

@deyi_Mcebisi said:

"And the teams over there are so evenly matched in terms of quality, unlike here in SA where we now know who's gonna win the league next year."
