Former Orlando Pirates captain Lekgwathi warns Sundowns of Zamalek ‘mind games’
Sundowns are set to host Cairo giants Zamalek for the first leg of the Champions League final as they continue their search for their first-ever trophy while Zamalek will be looking to collect their sixth star.
“With my experience, I played in the final [with Orlando Pirates] and we also started at home. I think our biggest mistake was that we allowed Al Ahly to score at home,” Lekgwathi said, remenicient of the 2013 championship where they lost to the Red Devils.
“I know if you don’t want the team to score, you are playing under pressure. But Sundowns must make sure that those guys don’t score at home” Lekgwathi was quoted by portal SoccerLaduma.
“Whenever you play in Egypt, those teams play mind games with you. Sundowns must make sure that they win at home because in the second-leg Zamalek are going to play mind games.
“Sundowns must score whenever they have the chance to do, One-nil, 2-0 is not going to be easy, they must make sure that they score three.
“Obviously I am going to support Sundowns, it is my home team. I come from Tshwane. Sundowns previously gave me a jersey and I am going to wear my Sundowns jersey on Saturday,” Lekgwathi concluded.
