Mamelodi Sundowns Looking Beyond Orlando Pirates?

Mokwena, widely regarded as a master tactician, made his intentions clear during a recent press conference when he admitted to already preparing for the match against Chiefs, despite facing Pirates just days before.

“I’m not really being 100% honest because I said to the players already that I’ve started watching Chiefs. I said to them this morning, and I confessed to them,” Mokwena told reporters.

The situation is further complicated by the scheduling of these crucial matches.

Mamelodi Sundowns’ Next Two Matches 

Mamelodi Sundowns are set to lock horns with Pirates in a DStv Premiership encounter on Wednesday, followed by a pivotal second leg of the 2023 MTN8 semifinal against Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday.

The first leg ended in a one-all draw, setting the stage for an intense showdown.

Mokwena’s statement has sparked discussions within the football community, with fans and pundits alike questioning whether this could potentially undermine his team’s performance against Pirates.

Some argue that focusing on the Chiefs match ahead of time may divert the players’ attention away from the immediate task at hand.


On the other hand, Mokwena’s strategic approach might be seen as a calculated move to keep his players motivated and maintain their competitive edge.

By looking beyond Pirates, he could be emphasising the importance of consistency and long-term planning in a grueling football season.

It remains to be seen how Sundowns will perform in these crucial back-to-back encounters against two of their biggest rivals.

Whether Mokwena’s tactics prove effective or if they carry inherent risks will only be revealed on the pitch.
