Entertainment in Downs' TKO final preps

Telkom Knockout

Mamelodi Sundowns quickly switched focus to the Telkom Knockout final following their Absa Premiership fixture on Wednesday but first had some fun in training on Thursday.

Sundowns' schedule will see them playing three games across three different competitions in three different parts of the continent in the space of just seven days.

Having begun the week in Casablanca, Morocco, where they drew 0-0 with Wydad in the CAF Champions League, they returned to Tshwane to beat Stellenbosch 3-1 on Wednesday and now gear up towards the TKO final against Maritzburg in Durban on Saturday.

Despite a strenuous test against the top flight newcomers at Loftus Versfeld last night, The Brazilians were back in Chloorkop on Thursday morning to prepare for the Team of Choice, who shocked Kaizer Chiefs in their semi-final encounter last month.

Nonetheless, it was all smiles and laughter in this morning's session as they hosted the media, with fun and games the order of the day before they traveled to KwaZulu-Natal.

It was also an unfortunate sight to see both Oupa Manyisa and Rivaldo Coetzee in moonboots, all but confirming their unavailability for this weekend's crunch tie at Moses Mabhida Stadium.
