The man who destroyed Mamelodi Sundowns, Rodney Ramagalela, says he had nothing to prove against his former side at Loftus Stadium on Tuesday.
Ramagalela, who joined Sundowns from Black Leopards in 2013 and was loaned out to Golden Arrows in 2015, was named man of the match after scoring a brace against the African champions.
His second strike was a touch of brilliance, scoring what could be an early contender for goal of the season.
After receiving a pass from captain Jabulani Maluleke just inside the Sundowns half, Ramagalela brilliantly turned and lobbed Denis Onyango after seeing that the Sundowns shot-stopper was off his line, as City bagged a valuable three points away from home with the 2-1 victory.
Despite coming back to haunt his former club, Ramagalela said he had nothing to prove.
"No, there is nothing to prove against Sundowns. As you know as Polokwane City we are on a mission to be in the top eight again," said the man also known as 'RamaG'.
"We knew what we were gonna try to do here at Loftus against Sundowns. There was nothing to prove. Already they know what I can do, so there is nothing to prove against them," he added.
Ramagalela was a nightmare for the Sundowns defense, making good runs in and around the box. He says he knew he would score because he studied the Sundowns rearguard.
"It’s a nice feeling to score against Sundowns. I knew I will score because I studied their defense. They are very slow and over-confident and I said this is my chance to score," said the speedy forward.
