Bafana Bafana midfielder Hlompho Kekana has backed the quality of Mamelodi Sundowns to prevail in their pursuit of a treble this season.

Kekana has echoed the sentiments of teammate Wayne Arendse in backing Pitso Mosimane’s side to clinch the treble consisting of the Absa Premiership, Nedbank Cup and Caf Champions League titles.

The former SuperSport United man is, however, under no illusions regarding the mammoth task ahead of his side and he has warned his teammates that they will have to display their quality if they are to compete on all fronts.

‘As players, we are fully aware of what is coming our way and it is up to everyone in the whole squad to be ready for a fight,’ he told The Sowetan.

‘Each and every member of the squad must be ready to be called upon at any time for battle and make a positive contribution to the team because it is going to be a rough ride.

‘We are professionals and the guys know very well that we will not be training as much as we would like because of the short turnaround of matches.

‘The most important thing for us is going to be resting enough between matches so that we have that freshness.

‘Unfortunately, there is nothing much we can do about the situation but to get out there and fight for the club and our fans,’ he concluded.

Sundowns face Cape Town City in the quarter-finals of the Nedbank Cup on Sunday afternoon with kick-off set for 15:00.
