‘Chiefs and Pirates are not our competition’: Sundowns coach Mngqithi
The coach identified Eric Tinkler’s Cape Town City, who were runners-up last season, third-placed finishers Royal AM and fourth-placed Stellenbosch FC as teams to compete for the league.
“The teams that are direct competition at this stage, for me, are Cape Town City, Stellenbosch and Royal AM. Those are direct competition and they are progressing very well as the seasons go by,” Mngqithi said.
“For me, I expect them to cause a lot of problems.
“I fully understand that Pirates have signed quite a lot of good players and Chiefs have signed a lot of good players, but I also understand that it takes a bit longer to get the team to gel when they’ve got a lot of new faces.”
