Mamelodi Sundowns MDC coach David Notoane hails first team example


Following success in the local MDC season, Downs took part in the four-team one day International Challenge in the Netherlands, brushing aside Excelsior 2-0 in the semi-finals before beating Japan’s Ichifuna 1-0 in the final to lift the international cup.

Coach Notoane was understandably proud after the victory, and says his side have learnt from the successes of the Sundowns first team in recent years.

“I’m really proud of the boys for this historic achievement, and happy to be part of the history making generation at Mamelodi Sundowns,” Notoane is quoted as saying on his club’s website.

“I must say that we have been learning all the good habits from the senior team, and how they go about their business. I guess you can say the winning has rubbed off and filtered down to us, we are truly inspired.

“Furthermore, I would like to thank coach Pitso and his technical team, the management staff, board and president for all the support.”
