VIDEO: MAMELODI SUNDOWNS WIN THE ABSA PREMIERSHIPDate: 2018-04-30
Mamelodi Sundowns beat Ajax Cape Town 3-1 at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday to take home the 2017/18 Absa Premiership title.
Ricardo Nascimento and Sibusiso Vilakazi both hit the net while Zimbabwean, Khama Billiat, did his share on the other end of the field to ensure the three points needed for Sundowns to be crowned champions.
Pitso Mosimane’s men now hold an unassailable seven-point lead over Orlando Pirates who, sitting second on the log, lost 1-0 to Cape Town City with just one round of fixtures remaining.
"We've got to thank the supporters," Mosimane said after the final whistle.
"They're singing at the top of their voice, thanks to the management, the board, the president of the team and his family without them we wouldn't be where we are.
"Thanks to the players and their families who have been patient with us because we are five out of seven days in a hotel without a complaint and the boys have stuck to it.
"We've been doing this for not one day, two years but for five years and the champions league is on again next year.
"Not forgetting my family, my wife and children for being patient with us...we've been through a lot as a family, Mosimane added.
A smiling Mosimane then hit out at his detractors who he claimed had a campaign against him and his team.
"I know not everyone is happy, but it's okay. I waited for this day. You know what I'm talking about. This is the day...many people are not happy.
"My fans are happy but people are sulking... but Masandawana are five years in a row in the Champions League," he concluded.
