CAF Champions League: South Africa’s Mamelodi Sundowns quest for continental glory renewed


With the echoes of their triumph in 2016 still resounding in their memory, Mamelodi Sundowns find themselves on the cusp of chasing an elusive second TotalEnergies CAF Champions League title.

Ever since clinching their maiden victory, the South African powerhouse has hungered for another taste of continental glory, yet each attempt slipped through their grasp.

However, buoyed by their recent conquest of the African Football League title, optimism courses through the veins of Masandawana as they set their sights once more on dominating the African football landscape.

Having reigned supreme domestically for the past six seasons, Mamelodi Sundowns are now poised to extend their dominance beyond South African borders. Their attractive style of play, earning them the moniker “The Brazilians,” has not only dazzled fans but also instilled fear in opponents across the continent.

Now, as they prepare to face reigning Tanzanian champions, Young Africans, in a two-legged Quarter-Finals fixture, the stage is set for a showdown of epic proportions.

Under the astute guidance of their youthful tactician, Rulani Mokwena, Mamelodi Sundowns epitomize a blend of ambition and innovation. At just 37 years old, Mokwena has carved a reputation as one of the brightest coaching talents on the continent, driven by a relentless pursuit of excellence.

With the African Club of the Year accolade from the CAF Awards in 2016 serving as a testament to their pedigree, Sundowns are primed to script another chapter in their storied history.

Central to their quest for continental supremacy stands Ronwen Williams, the custodian whose heroics between the sticks have earned him acclaim as the best goalkeeper in Africa.

Williams not only showcases impeccable shot-stopping abilities but also serves as a linchpin in Sundowns’ build-up play, orchestrating proceedings from the back with finesse.

As the drums of anticipation beat louder with each passing day, Mamelodi Sundowns stand on the brink of destiny.

With the weight of history on their shoulders and the hopes of a nation behind them, they march forward, resolute in their pursuit of that elusive second TotalEnergies CAF Champions League title, ready to etch their names in the annals of African football folklore once more.
