Mngqithi: We have to always stay focused

Manqoba Mngqithi and Rulani Mokwena

Manqoba Mngqithi says Mamelodi Sundowns must stay grounded as they look to maintain their unbeaten start to the 2021/22 DStv Premiership season.

The Brazilians are top of the league standings after five games and sealed their place in the MTN8 final with a 4-1 aggregate win over Golden Arrows this week.

Up next for Mngqithi's charges is a home clash with a wounded Swallows, following their MTN8 semi-final exit at the hands of Cape Town City.

Ahead of the weekend's game, Mngqithi said in the Sowetan: "In football, anything is possible.

"That's why we have to keep our humility and stay focused because sometimes, good results will make you lose your mind and start thinking you are unbeatable, then you get surprised by opponents.

"Probably, a team that nobody anticipated can beat you. That's why we have to always stay focused and I want to give credit to coach Steve [Komphela], coach Rulani [Mokwena] and coach Wendell Robinson in that space in making sure that everybody is always focused."
