Masandawana have split their home games across two venues since departing the HM Pitje Stadium, with Loftus Versfeld and Lucas Moripe Stadium playing host to the high flyers.

And, after leading his side to the Premiership title at Free State Stars on the final day of the season, Mosimane was encouraged by the sizeable travelling support at Goble Park.

"We would love to play in Mamelodi, it will be a slaughterhouse," he told Times Live. "You saw what happened in our last match against Free State Stars at Goble Park - it was like we were playing at home.

"Imagine if we had a venue of about 15,000 closer to the fans in Mamelodi, similar to what TP Mazembe has in Lubumbashi.

"Not many people will come out of that stadium [unscathed] and if you look at the Dr Petrus Molemela Stadium in Bloemfontein, it's not easy to play there. So, we will definitely love to play there."

He continued: "I used to play at HM Pitje as a Sundowns player many years ago and it was always full. Remember the population of Mamelodi over time has probably tripled.

"We did a parade there and you could see that Sundowns is a Pretoria club. Children who are 15 and 16 years old support Sundowns because we have been dominant over the past six years, and people go with the winners."
