Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies captain Agnes Nkosi says they are looking forward to competing against the best teams in the inaugural Women’s Caf Champions League next year.
The commencement date of the first ever Women’s Champions League is yet to be confirmed but the Confederation of African Football insists that the league will without a doubt start in 2021 with 10 to 15 clubs from several countries.
After finishing the season without a loss or a draw – clinching the title with a 100 per cent win record in 21 matches, ‘Banyana Ba Style’ earned themselves a spot at the CAF Women Champions League.
The champions were recently handed the winners trophy and R500 000 at an event held at the Safa headquarters in Nasrec.
“Winning the trophy came with a lot of hard work from all the players. We all gave our best. It was never easy. We had strong opponents that came well prepared. Most of our tough matches were played away,” said Nkosi.
“We managed to be strong and consistently switched on for every game. What was key for us was that we took every game as our Cup final.
“Coach Jerry Tshabalala continuously reiterated that during training. We trained harder to prepare for what awaited us on the field of play hence we were able to win the league undefeated with neither a loss nor draw winning all our games,” added the Sundowns Ladies captain.
“We truly are grateful for the opportunity to participate in the Women’s Caf Champions League. We are excited to face the best teams in Africa. We have resumed training.
“Our end goal in mind is to win the Caf tournament and retain our Safa National Women’s League Champions title. We are already on our sixth week with preparations for the big stages,” concluded Nkosi.
