Sundowns head coach Rulani Mokwena is thankful of the support Mamelodi Sundowns fans also known as The Yellow National has been giving his team and is looking forward to a good 2023.
Mamelodi Sundowns had two matches that were sold out at their home grounds this year thus far and that has been an encouraging sign for the Sundowns coach. Despite being humiliated by Orlando Pirates in MTN8 second leg semi-finals in Polokwane, the yellow nation kept singing for their players. However, the club did at least win the Carling Cup last month which brought joy to their faithful supporters.
“To the yellow nation first is to thank them, it’s been an incredible year. And, a year fortunately that we spent the most part of it with them. We were able to celebrate the trophies coming out of Covid and that type of situation where they didn’t have possibilities to enjoy and celebrate football with us”, Mokwena told the media.
“So, we just want to thank them for their love, for their support and for their unconditional effort in supporting us and hopefully we can continue to make them proud on the pitch. Ours is to serve and we try our level best to make sure that we serve them with the right diligence and with as much appreciation for how they serve us. Thank you to the Masandawana and we are looking forward to greater 2023.”
Sundowns resume the campaign when they welcome Orlando Pirates on December 30 at Loftus Versfeld.
