Sundowns are looking to defend a title for the first time under the tutelage of Mosimane, who believes they are now where they belong.

Lebohang Maboe, Anthony Laffor and Phakamani Mahlambi were on the scoresheet for Sundowns, while Riyaad Norodien and Kermit Erasmus found the back of the net for the Citizens.

“Ever since I have been here [at Sundowns], it’s either we first or second and tonight we are in same place we have been for past five years and that shows we are a good team,” said Mosimane.

“First or second and we are where we are, even tonight as we speak it’s not by luck. You can’t be there by luck. You change players, you lose players and you are a team in construction, we are still a team in construction,” he added.

Sundowns going for unprecedented ninth league title, but it won’t be easy with Wits and Orlando Pirates also gunning for the championship. Mosimane also wants Sundowns to get a second star by winning the CAF Champions League.

“At Sundowns it’s about trophies, it’s about bragging rights, it’s consistency. We are trying to go for number nine, we want the other star.

“It’s not going to be easy. Pirates are not going to give up, they are scoring, they are happy, they are rejuvenated, they are coming back and scored four goals [against AmaZulu]. Wits are a strong team. You can’t be there [on top of the log] for a long time, it shows you are a good team,” added Mosimane.
