Pitso Mosimane says it is Mamelodi Sundowns' culture to always attack.

The Brazilians mentor made the point after his team played to a goalless draw with Rwanda's Rayon Sports in their CAF Champions League opener in Kigali on Wednesday.

“It was tough even here,” Mosimane is quoted as saying on his club's website.

"Football is like that. It’s tough. But I don’t know how Rayon Sports play away. I am happy that we didn’t sit back. We came here to play. We don’t sit at the back. We always go forward to play, even if we play away. It’s our culture because if you sit at the back you invite pressure and the goal will come.

"It was a tough game. I like the atmosphere. The fans were good, peaceful and no issues. It was a nice environment and I am happy that we kept a clean sheet."

Mosimane, who has little love for teams that 'park the bus', should have no such concerns for the return duel in Atteridgeville if the words of Rayon counterpart Ivan Minnaert are anything to go by.

The Absa Premiership leaders next entertain third-tier minnows EC Bees in the last-16 of the Nedbank Cup on Tuesday at Loftus Versfeld before hosting Minnaert's men on March 18.
