A win today against Black Leopards is a must says Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Lesedi Kapinga.
The two teams meet in the DStv Premiership later today, and the former Leopards player says while they won’t disrespect his former team, the league leaders need to get three points, after three consecutive draws.
The diminutive midfielder joined Sundowns at the start of the season, and has made six substitute appearances so far.
“This is a very important game for me because I have too much respect for Black Leopards, this is the team that gave me a platform to play at a high stage when no team wanted to try me in the DStv Premiership because of the size of my body so I will forever be grateful, thankful and appreciate everything they did in my life,” Kapinga told the club’s website.
“Every player is working very hard giving and giving their best when given a chance to play which tells you that the group is heading in one direction which is to win games. As for me, I’m getting my confidence back each game that I play under the leadership of coaches and also the senior players.”
“As a team, I think we are doing well so far we still have our unbeaten record which is a good thing, as players we know that is going to be a difficult game, but we have to get the three points because the target is to win the league.”
“As a team, we have some goals so we have to work towards those goals and we aren’t going to disrespect or undermine anyone.”
