Mnisi: We want to challenge Sundowns

Royal AM CEO Sinky Mnisi wants to see the ambitious DStv Premiership club challenge Mamelodi Sundowns for the league title next season.

Royal AM are currently in third place on the standings, having occupied second spot for a number of weeks, before dropping behind Cape Town City.

Sundowns have already been crowned champions but the battle for a CAF Champions League and CAF Confederation Cup spot is still very much up for grabs.

Also in the race are fourth-placed Kaizer Chiefs, who are two points behind Royal AM.

Mnisi said in the Sowetan: "Our aim was to bring a different dimension to SA football and I believe we have done that, and everybody can see it.

"There's absolutely no reason Royal AM can't challenge Sundowns. I strongly believe Sundowns can be toppled. We are prepared to fight hammer and tongs to make sure that we do that."

Mnisi added: "You know with me, I always make predictions when we start. In the GladAfrica when we started, I told the chairlady [Mkhize] that we were going to win the league.

"And when we started in the DStv Premiership and brought the two teams [Bloemfontein Celtic and Royal] together in two days, and I told everybody who cared that we were going to be in the top eight.

"Everybody knows about that and as a matter of fact, I think we have overachieved by not only being in the top eight, but there's a strong possibility that we might be going to Africa."
