Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder George Maluleka says their top-of-the-table DStv Premiership clash against Swallows FC is going to be a big game.
The two unbeaten sides meet at the Lucas Masterpieces Moripe Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Maluleka has been impressed by their opponents, and says it is good for South African football to see a successful Swallows team.
But the former Ajax Cape Town, SuperSport United and Kaizer Chiefs man says he backs his team to get the win.
“It is a big game indeed I think,” Malukela told the club’s website.
“They’ve been doing very well and I’m really happy for them especially from where they came from and what the club has been through. This club is very big and has a history in our country so I’m very excited about playing against them.”
“It’s going to be very difficult obviously because they’ve had a very good start to the season and they’re maintaining their performance every week so we also need to be vigilant, but I’m pretty sure they’re just as curious about us since we’ve been having a good run as well.”
“I’m not surprised really, we played against them during the pre-season and you could already see that they have a team and still were confident after winning the NFD, so it was close that time as well when we played, but it’s a different ball game now as there’s a lot more at stake, so it should be very interesting but I am fully behind the guys to get a positive result.”
