Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane has squashed the idea that he needs 'Motsepe Money' to succeed.
The former SuperSport United and Bafana Bafana mentor has opened up regarding the notion that Mamelodi Sundowns are only exceeding expectations due to their financial muscle in the Premier Soccer League.
"I have always had a vision," Mosimane told Sowetan.
"When I was at SuperSport United, I took the team to the CAF Champions League group stages. We made six cup finals in a row. Where were those millions of rand then? People talk of the millions today, and not of the fact that when I took over SuperSport they were in the relegation zone.
"I've got the experience, first with SuperSport, then Bafana. I was at the Africa Cup of Nations with Ted Dumitru and with Parreira in 2008. I was involved in the World Cup. Sundowns are benefiting from that experience. No, please, it has nothing to do with Motsepe's money."
