Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Rulani Mokwena praised his team after setting a new PSL record with a victory over Stellenbosch, stating that he is ‘super proud’ of his troops.

Mokwena says Sundowns breaking PSL records is a testament to the work and dedication of the club’s players and staff.

The Tshwane giants’ persistent pursuit of success, which has stretched back over six consecutive seasons, was on full display after the eight two rounds of the 2023/24 DStv Premiership season.

On Wednesday night at a wet Lucas Moripe Stadium, Sundowns beat Stellenbosch FC 3-1 to equal Kaizer Chiefs’ record of eight straight wins at the start of the season.

In addition, Sundowns also broke a record that was previously held by Amakhosi. They have set a new PSL record for the longest unbeaten run with 32 matches, including 26 wins and 6 draws, since September 2022.

Furthermore, rising starlet Siyabonga Mabena, who scored the third goal in Sundowns’ win over Stellies, became the youngest player to score a league goal for the club in PSL history. He netted at 16 years, 7 months, and 9 days old, beating Siyanda Xulu’s Sundonws’ record by 478 days.

 “I am super proud, super, super proud,” Mokwena said when asked about setting a new PSL record.

“Unfortunately, I am not the type of person who likes to celebrate too much because there’s a very important game for us on the weekend.

“But I’m super, super proud because the record you are talking about has been standing for almost 20 years. If we went for another two years, it would be 20 years that the record has not been broken.

“And it was a super team [Chiefs] that had that record, a very, very good side. It’s unbelievable; I speak a lot about this group not getting enough credit and not getting enough praise.

“Tomorrow all newspapers, all these newspapers must have the record-breaking story,” Mokwena added.

“And not back page, it’s not a back page story, it’s a front-page story, and this group deserves it because of what they are doing.”

The important game Mokwena was refereeing is the CAF Champions League clash against Burundian side, Bumamuru. Mamelodi Sundowns will host Bumamuru in the return leg of the second preliminary round match at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday.Hi
