Sundowns’ keeper Onyango on Zamalek clash: It’s not done yet


Mamelodi Sundowns’ goalkeeper Denis Onyango insists their job of winning the African Champions League title is not yet done.

After a 3-0 home win over Zamalek SC, Sundowns bring a comfortable lead into Egypt for Sunday’s return leg.

However, Onyango is not willing to be comfortable with their situation, saying, “The mood is okay. We are very happy to be in the final, and we are happy to come here with a 3-0 lead. Nonetheless, we are not taking it for granted, we know the type of team we are playing against, it’s a very competitive team, everyone expects us to win, but it’s not yet done.”

The 29 year old continued, “We are playing a quality team; they are not in the final by accident or by default. They worked for it, they beat Wydad Casablanca here 4-0, and we know how dangerous they are when they play at home, but at the moment it’s in our hands. We have one hand on the trophy, and we are going to fight until the final whistle.”

Zamalek need a miracle, and chairman Mortada Mansour is pulling out all the stops, even inviting president Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi to the match on October 23.
