Ex-Mamelodi Sundowns Natasha Tshiclas chairlady has urged all South African football fans to forget their differences this weekend and rally behind the ‘Brazilians’ as they play the ‘most important game’.
Sundowns are set to host Al Ahly in the second leg of the CAF Champions League quarterfinal at Lucas Moripe Stadium.
The Egyptian giants go into the clash with a two-goal advantage following their 2-0 win at home last week.
“I’m sure they can change you know that result that happened there definitely,”said Tshiclas.
“Because we know Sundowns you know they can. Last time they beat Sundowns here it was 3-0 isn’t it? You remember? Ja so I mean they can do it again, they are calm, more comfortable and I’m sure they realise the mistakes they did there so they can do it this side here as well I believe a lot on them.
“Any team that plays Champions League you know, we must always support, especially Sundowns (laughs). We must support any South African team, that’s the priority. It doesn’t matter if it’s a Pirates or Chiefs or Sundowns…I will support any of them, “added Tshiclas
“But I know the capability as I say of Sundowns, I know that. But any team like Wits (Bidvest) they went out I was upset, why? Err…priority is South Africa teams. Definitely they will come (South African football fans) believe me. Ja that’s a big one because.”
