We want to be the best – Mokwena

“I spent some time in Brazil in the off-season and during the break in early parts of January, what we’ve done is incredible, you go to Brazil [and] they speak, ‘Ow! You are the Mamelodi Sundowns coach’,” Rhulani Mokwena said as quoted by Goal.

“The first thing they talk about is the type of football we’re playing at almost every single club. You go to Fluminense, they ask ‘How do you get the team to play like that?’

“You go to Flamengo, you go to Vasco, Botafogo and they say ‘unbelievable’. They follow Mamelodi Sundowns, it’s incredible,”

“If the team has that type reach only based on performances on the pitch you can just imagine we scale into the Club World Cup space how much potential does this football club have.

“So it’s the ambition of the club and it’s one we have to work very, very hard to try to reach but for sure with the quality that Mamelodi Sundowns have, the support we get from the club it’s a possibility for sure,”
