AmaZulu coach Benni McCarthy admits Mamelodi Sundowns showed their championship quality to claim the three points in their DStv Premiership opener, adding that on another day his team would have won the game.
A Themba Zwane penalty in the 44th minute was enough to hand Sundowns victory over Usuthu in the league opener at Loftus Versfeld on Friday night.
In a tight affair with chances coming at a premium, the Brazilians showed their experience by producing a professional and solid performance to get their title defence up and running with three points over last season’s second-placed team.
Speaking to SuperSport TV after the game, Benni admitted he felt the Downs penalty was soft and his players struggled with the soft pitch. He, however, also gave credit to Sundowns for showing their championship quality.
