After an eventful year, ‘Jingles’ says Christmas holidays gives everyone at a club a chance to spend quality time with their loved ones.

“Don’t drink and drive, don’t text and drive. Enjoy yourself and Merry Chritsmas,” said Mosimane.

“It's been hectic, it's been good. Let's unwind and relax, let's see our families a bit.But we are back again on December 27 December. We have to come back because we have a game on January 6 [against Polokwane City],” he added.

Despite losing both the MTN 8 and Telkom Knockout this year, Mosimane feels 2017 has been good to his team.

Sundowns won the CAF Super Cup, finished second in the league and were knocked out in the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

“We did very well. To be honest it was a blessing in disguise [to lose out on other cups].

“Not to say we wanted to lose Telkom. We wanted to win Telkom, but when we got knockout out of Telkom it gave us that nice run where we could concentrate on the league.

”So you can't go for everything because you can end up getting nothing,” Mosimane added.
