Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Rulani Mokwena wants to make sure they wrap up the DStv Premiership title as soon as possible in order to focus on the Caf Champions League and Nedbank Cup.
The Brazilians currently hold a 14-point league at the top of the league standings with 44 points from 19 matches following their recent 1-1 draw against Marumo Gallants at Loftus Versfeld Stadium.
Mokwena knows the league title isn’t won in December but is looking to clinch their fifth title as soon as possible.
“We know that the league title is not won. No league has ever been won in December,” Mokwena told the media.
“We’ve got a lot of work ahead of us and the schedule is going to be hectic because there’s Champions League when we come back. We’ve got to make sure we continue to wrap up the league title and continue to focus on the Nedbank Cup.
“We have a plan in place. It’s a mid-season break. We will take three weeks off and we will resume training on the 13th, 14th and we will start with medicals.
“As soon as we get back, we will spend a couple of days at Chloorkop and then resort to a camp.
“We still ironing out the finer details because initially, the plan was to go overseas or out of the country, but with all the travel restrictions, it makes it very difficult.
“So, we will stay within the borders, but we will still try to make the camp as competitive and as beneficial to the group as we possibly can.”
