Former Swallows Coach Dylan Kerr is convinced Sundowns have the arsenal and tools to keep the Dstv Premiership in their cabinet once again this season. Sundowns have been consistent, having lost only twice in the league so far. Coach Dylan Kerr has said that the key element that favors Sundowns to retain the league title is that the depth in their squad is better than any team in the league.
“Sundowns have the depth in the squad, better than any team in the league. They are run by good people and have structures and also no interference from outside. They have quality players as well, and players in the squad that have been there for a few seasons. Also, teams who play against them, have a fear of having a go at them because of the quality they have right now.
“They [Sundowns] are not even conceding a lot of goals and they are winning. They are on a run that many teams need to compete against. Many teams are kidding themselves due to their own inconsistency. Teams that want to compete against Sundowns are supposed to beat the so-called smaller teams, but they seldom do well against teams they presume are not as good as themselves,” he told Thisisfootball.Africa.
Sundowns are currently sitting in first position with 40 points so far, and coach Dylan Kerr reckons the team from Pretoria will maintain their form until the end of the season. However, he feels that the second spot in the league table will be occupied by Richards Bay. Richards Bay is currently in third position with 26 points, just one point behind SuperSport United.
“Richards Bay is the surprise team this season so far. Last season I think it was Royal AM and the season before it was Cape Town City and AmaZulu. Richards Bay needs to concentrate on the league. Consistency is the word that Richards Bay and other teams must understand if they are going to challenge Sundowns”, he said.
