Under the tutelage of coach Pitso Mosimane, Sundowns achieved the feat on Wednesday night (4 May) after defeating neighbours University of Pretoria 3 – 0 in a Pretoria derby with two games to spare.
“Congratulations are in order for the Mamelodi Sundowns family – the President Mr Patrice Motsepe, the technical team led by Pitso Mosimane, the players and the fans – for a job well done.
Sundowns will have to put the league title celebrations on hold as they turn their attention to the CAF Confederations Cup tournament this weekend. They meet Medeama of Ghana on Saturday, 7 May (18h00) at the Lucas Moripe Stadium hoping to consolidate their fast growing continental profile.
“You are the only team left in the CAF competition from South Africa and again want to wish you all the best. Go make us proud by flying the country’s flag high. We hope that your title-winning performance will continue on Saturday and spur you on to beat Medeama,” added Dr Jordaan.
