Sundowns criticise Nedbank Cup schedule
Mamelodi Sundowns will soldier on despite being given a short amount of time to prepare for the Nedbank Cup.
JOHANNESBURG - Mamelodi Sundowns says it will soldier on despite being given a short amount of time to prepare for the Nedbank Cup semi-final clash against Free State Stars.
Both Sundowns and the Stars will lock horns in the first Nedbank Cup Semi-final on Friday, despite being given only two day to recover from playing in the Premier Soccer League (PSL).
Other semi-finalists AmaZulu and SuperSport United played their league games on Tuesday and will only battle it out for a spot in the final on Sunday.
Sundowns coach Johan Neeskens has cried foul over the amount of time given to his team.
“I don’t know the reasons behind this, but it’s not logical. We need time to prepare.”
However, Neeskens says his side will give it their best.
Meanwhile, the Brazilians were beaten 2 - 0 by Amakhosi in their PSL fixture at FNB Stadium on Wednesday night.
They are currently behind log leaders Orlando Pirates.
