Downs grateful to Tanzanian people

CAF Champions League

Mamelodi Sundowns have thanked the Tanzanian people for the warm hospitality received during the club's stay in Dar es Salaam.

Sundowns were in Tanzania for their CAF Champions League match against Algerian side CR Belouizdad, whom they beat 5-1 on Sunday.

The Brazilians are due to return to South Africa on today before another trip to DR Congo to face TP Mazembe on Saturday.

South Africa and Tanzania continue to enjoy great international relations between the two countries, as was evident again during Sundowns' visit.

"We must thank the hospitality you gave us in Tanzania. We really appreciate everything. Your level of humanity, your level of kindness was seen by all and sundry," said co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi.

"We all really appreciate it. At Sundowns we feel at home here with the history attached to Tanzania and South Africa and our freedom. We really felt at home and welcomed in your environment and we want to thank you for that."
