Sandilands – players are dejected

The shot-stopper has identified in particular the club’s exit from the MTN8 cup as a bitter pill to swallow.
“We feel gutted to the point that it is even hard to wake up and face the world in the morning,” the goal-minder said.
Sundowns lost 3-2 in the second leg of the MTN8 Cup to Moroka Swallows, this after playing to a 3-3 draw in the first leg.
The Brazilians have conceded quick goals in the first half in both semifinal legs and Sandilands says it should never happen again.
“We have to be more organised and tight at the back, especially in set pieces, where we were punished the most.
“No opposition player should be free in our own half. We have to maintain concentration at all times”
“We have to defend well as a collective because defending is a team effort, and not just up to the defenders. I should start upfront”
“I speak for all the players when I say, we are very disappointed with the way we lost and we know that we let our supporters down.
“We would really like to forget this period as soon as possible and get back to winning ways,” concluded the former Platinum Stars goalkeeper.
