Mosimane: We've got nothing to lose this year
Pitso Mosimane has attributed his side’s victory to a change in attitude and a free approach to the game.
JOHANNESBURG - Mamelodi Sundowns have kicked off their Confederation of African Football Champions' League group stage campaign in the best possible way, picking up a win over Algerian giants E.S Setif away.
Sundowns beat Setif 2-0 on Saturday, thanks to goals from Tiyani Mabunda and Khama Billiat, and as a result, top the group on goal difference.
The result came as a surprise for many after the Premier Soccer league champions weren't given any chance in Group B, which is touted as the group of death.
Coach Pitso Mosimane has attributed his side's victory to a change in attitude and a free approach to the game, which allowed the players to express themselves as best they could.
"I told you guys earlier that we've got the champions league next year, this year is just to experiment and to have fun, we've got nothing to lose this year."
Mosimane will be hoping that the boys can continue having fun as they look ahead to their next major clash against Nigerian giants Enyimba, who they host at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on 29 June.
