Rulani Mokwena: We're very proud and honoured

Mamelodi Sundowns

Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Rulani Mokwena heaped praise on his players after they claimed their fifth successive South African top-flight title.

The Brazilians were held to a goalless draw with Cape Town City on Wednesday night but the point was enough to win the 2022 DStv Premiership, with four games still to play.

Speaking after the game, and reflecting on a challenging season, Mokwena paid tribute to the entire Sundowns family.

He said on SuperSport: "Firstly of course congratulations to Masandawana family, congratulations to the supporters and it's good to wrap up the title with them with us here, so I'm very happy for them.

"Congratulations to the technical team, it has been a very difficult season but we grafted and put in the hours, so congratulations. Congratulations to the club, the entire club management, the Motsepe family, the Chairman, the President, the board and everybody involved.

"The support has been incredible throughout, in bad moments and good moments, we stuck together. They've given us a push throughout the season.

"But last and not least and probably the most important people is the football players, they have been magnificent this season, what they have achieved on the pitch has been incredible.

"If I talk to you about how many times we've changed systems, how many build-up schemes we've got, how many high press schemes, it's only a reflection of the quality and the intellectual capacity of our players and we're very proud of them and just honoured to be their coaches."
