Mamelodi Sundowns season preview

Overview: Mamelodi Sundowns appear set to challenge strongly in the race for the 2017/18 Premiership crown, after the arrival of Oupa Manyisa and George Lebese from Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs respectively. 

While the Brazilians were pipped to the post by eventual Premiership champions, Bidvest Wits, in 2016/17, adding proven reinforcements to the squad could only no doubt help towards ensure the workload is shared in the PSL, as well in the African Champions League. 

Also arriving is Ghana international goalkeeper, Razak Brimah, to add competition in the keeping department after Wayne Sandilands departure to Pirates. 

The Pitso Mosimane-coached outfit were narrowly beaten to the title in the last campaign by Wits, largely as a result of exertions in Africa that eventually saw them crowned the continent’s champions. As such, they have plenty to prove this time around to claim a title they last won with ease in 2015/16.
