Gagasi FM Sports specialist Mike Makaab has attributed Mamelodi Sundowns’ success to their high level of professionalism that has allowed them to soar to incredible heights in South African football. Sundowns secured their seventh consecutive DSTV Premiership title in style with a 5-1 drubbing of a struggling Kaizer Chiefs side at the FNB Stadium on Thursday night. The league title is Masandawana’s second piece of silverware this season after they secured the inuagural edition of the African Football League earlier in the season, and will now chase their third trophy with the Nedbank Cup still up for grabs.

Despite having the league wrapped up, Sundowns still have the opportunity to reach some incredible milestones in the DSTV Premiership. Rhulani Mokwena’s men are still unbeaten in the league this season and have six matches to go, and could become the first PSL side to go through the entire season unbeaten. Sundowns also have the the PSL points tally record of 71 points set by Pitso Mosimane in the 2015/16 season on their sights, with 18 points still up for grabs for the Brazilians this season.

Speaking on extratime on Gagasi FM Mike Makaab has attributed Sundowns’ success to their high level of proffessionalism and their desire to constantly improve.

“It’s one thing talking about the fact that they have a big budget and the fact that they have signed top players and have got such depth in their squad, but it’s another thing in terms of their professionalism. You know I have been inside that building, I have spoken to people inside that building, I have seen goings on inside that building. Let me tell you in terms of professionalism, again I think they are forerver seeking to improve on that side, they are never satisfied,” said Makaab.

“They’re aim is to be competitive at the Club World Cup, and that is the most important thing for Mamelodi Sundowns at the moment. The dominance in Sout Africa is important because that sets the foundation, but they truly want to be a dominant force on the African continent, and they want to hold their heads high when they really represet South Africa at the Club World Cup,” Makaab concluded.
