Sundowns Squad impacts MDC Players Progress

Yesterday at a fully packed Multichoice Diski Challenge media briefing, that was held at PSL office Alex “Mokokwana” Barnes Bapela brought more into attention that Mamelodi Sundowns first team have around 50 players and that make it difficult for his MDC squad to make an easy tap in to first team.


However his relationship with coach Pitso, regarded as the best because on daily basis they exchange ideas in the interest of the team and since no formal registrations taking place at MDC to ensure that players are registered for ONLY participation at the tournament but it allows all players within team structure to be eligible participants,

By doing that we might see more fringe or players that are not on coach’s plans for first who haven’t secured loans or free transfere to clubs be given a run as Mamelodi Sundowns multichoice diski challenge team tipped to be this year’s favourites to win it.

Their opening their account with newsly promoted side Lamontville Golden Arrows.

Mamelodi Sundowns MDC coach praised Pitso at the Multichoice Diski Challenge conference held at the PSL offices in Parktown.

The former Ka Bo-Yellow star praise Pitso on the way he monitore’s the MDC challenge team.


He knows about the players and their progress. Which one’s are doing well without even giving report to the 1st team coach.

He is always one step ahead of him and knows which team needs to be promoted without Alex having to submit the names of the players.

The team work at the Sundowns technical team is tremendous according to Barns.

The MDC coach isn’t happy with being runners up last year. He wants to win the trophy this year.

Will Barnes Bapela’s side lift the trophy come end of this tournament?
