We gunning for everything – Maema
“I believe we have started the year very well and we are taking each game as it comes to complete this cycle of games in the league.” Neo Maema told the official Mamelodi Sundowns website.
“It’s never easy to play Maritzburg United away but we have the team that is capable of getting maximum points over the weekend.
“The coaches and the rest of the technical team always do their ultimate best to ensure that we are prepared thoroughly to face any opposition. We work for each other on the pitch and that helps us to break down opposition.
“We will just apply ourselves accordingly and put up a good fight to come back home victorious. It would be a dream come true for me if Mamelodi Sundowns can win everything this season.
“The thought of it makes it even sweeter and we will fight until the end because we are a team with its own ambitions so every game is important; to win the title and the rest of the remaining games.”
