Ramasike: Sundowns can reach Champions League final

Mamelodi Sundowns African Champions

Former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Eric Ramasike says it's strange that they have struggled in the MTN8 but has backed them to go deep in the Caf Champions League.

The Brazilians last won the MTN8 in 2007, when it was still called the SAA Super Eight Cup, and once again fell short this season as they were knocked out 3-1 on aggregate in the semi-finals by eventual winners SuperSport United.

However, Ramasike also went on to praise the Chloorkop outfit's exploits in Africa, having once again reached the Champions League group stage, and reckons they have what it takes to go all the way.

"I think reaching the group stages is a massive achievement once again. The team and the technical team must be congratulated," Ramasike told Goal.

"On the MTN8, I think someone has bewitched Sundowns because they only reach the semi-finals and if they go to the final, they still lose. Someone must have ensured they don't win this trophy.

"We can play well until the final, but no luck when it comes to winning the gold medal. However, they are through to the stages of the big fish which is the Champions League.

"I am confident we will go to the finals this year. They are doing well and what is pleasing is to see the goals. They have the squad and the depth even if injuries strike, the coach isn't concerned. The players are experienced when it comes to the domestic and continental schedule."
