Have Sundowns Been Successful This Season?

Mamelodi Sundowns have born knocked out of the CAF Champions League, losing by goal difference to Moroccan giants Wydad AC. Masandawana failed to score away from home and then let 2 goals slip on home soil. One of the goals which Ronwen Williams conceded came from one of his teammates, Mothobi Mvala, thus being declared an own goal. Downs head coach, Rhulani Mokwena, insists that he is not upset with Mvala and has given the defender his full support. With Sundowns exiting yet another cup, they have now only claimed victory on local shores, having won the PSL with 7 games to spare. Given the magnitude of this title, this is nothing to look down upon, but when you consider the set expectations, have Sundowns had a successful season? Missing out on the Nedbank Cup, and now the CAF Champions League, Mzansi speaks about Sundowns’ season and question whether or not it can be deemed successful.

Marumo Gallants have been more than impressive in the 2022/23 CAF Confederations Cup. They have taken points from some of Africa’s biggest clubs, in their hunt for Silverware. Gallants showed true honour and valour throughout the tournament and were ultimately knocked out by Tanzanian outfit Young Africans. Losing 4-1 on aggregate, Bahlabane Ba Ntwa can pat themselves on the back for what they have achieved. Contrary to this, Gallants have officially been relegated from South Africa’s top-flight league, the Dstv premiership. Gallants have been far less impressive on the local stage. Accumulating 29 points from 30 games, less than a point a match. Gallants have suffered in the PSL and will soon be plying their trade in the lower division. Speaking on the latest episode of the Fan Reaction Show, Mzansi suggests Gallants will struggle to get back into the Dstv premiership, given the competitiveness of the National First Division (NFD). “Look at Cape Town Spurs, how long have they been there for?” Said one fan.

On the latest episode of the Fan Reaction Show, Mzansi reacts to Mamelodi Sundowns’ unfortunate exit from the Car Champions League. Masandawana lost to Moroccan giants Wydad AC on goal difference. Marumo Gallants have officially been relegated from the Dstv Premiership and the fans have discussed their chances of returning to South Africa’s top-flight.
