Mamelodi Sundowns forward Anthony Laffor says that his side is unfazed by the social media threats they’re receiving ahead of their match against Zamalek.

Zamalek is set to face Mamelodi Sundowns on Sunday 23rd, in the second leg of the CAF Champions League final match at Borg El Arab Stadium in Alexandria.

The South African Champions have ended the first leg at home with a comfortable 3-0 lead.

Sundowns striker Anthony Laffor, who scored a goal against Zamalek in the first leg match, made it clear that his side does not pay attention to any threats they receive on social media from the Whites’ fans.

“Since the game in South Africa, some guys on social media have sent us threats, but as professionals it’s nothing we need to pay attention to. At the end of the day, we just need to be focused and play our football,” he told

The Liberian striker has ruled out the possibility of the fans invading the pitch on Sunday.

“I don’t think they will come onto the pitch and disturb us; they are fans and will stay in the stands and shout for their team, that’s obvious. So we just need to focus on our own game, forget everything else and just play football,” he continued.

The 31-year-old stressed that his side needs to maintain concentration as the game is not over yet.

“It’s not over yet. We are ahead 3-0 and some people think it’s over, but it’s not over. It is all in our hands. We need to be focused and keep our concentration levels very high and we’ll see what happens on Sunday,” he concluded.



Mohammed Salama is a 20-year-old who fell in love with football since Egypt's AFCON final match against Ivory Coast! Strangely enough an Al Ahly and Al Masry fan locally. In addition, he's a hardcore Bayern Munich supporter.
