Young Africans coach Miguel Gamondi knows full well what to expect from his side’s CAF Champions League clash with former club Mamelodi Sundowns.

Gamondi guided the Brazilians to DStv Premiership success in the 2006/07 season alongside Neil Tovey.

He has been in charge of Yanga this term and guided them to a second-placed finish in their Champions League Group D, behind Al Ahly, to secure their quarter-final place.

As he prepares his Tanzanian team for their first leg at the Benjamin Mkapa National Stadium on Saturday, the Argentine mentor explained he is very much looking forward to the tie.

Ahead of the game, he was reported by the Citizen to have said: “Sundowns is one of the biggest teams performing in the continent along with Al Ahly, no doubt they are the best on the continent.

“They are where they are today because of the consistency they have shown over the years. 

“I really like the style of play of Sundowns. They play their type of football that I like. 

“I was coach at Sundowns, and I know what they like to do and what they are building now is not only important for South Africa, but for African continent because they it’s an advert for Africa.”

Gamondi, who also counts CR Belouizdad and USM Alger as just two of his former teams, added: “For us, it is probably going to be the toughest opponent we will get but at the same time it will be a great learning experience for Young Africans to play with a quality side and technical staff. I think this will be a great advert for African football.”
