“When you have three matches a week, believe you me it won’t be easy for some of the teams.”
The 2-0 win over City was a good start to the season, with Sundowns not only picking up three points but beating a fellow championship rival and keeping a clean sheet.
“One is impressed to start the season with the three points, against a team like this one — away from home, with a clean sheet,” Mngqithi said.
“We appreciate that we are going home with the three points. It’s not an easy trip this one, and I am sure that it will also help us in the future to have come here and gotten the three points. I am sure not many people will come here and get the three points.”
Sundowns’ next assignment is a home game against TS Galaxy at Loftus Versfeld on August 10.
