Neeskens not worried about Celtic match



Mamelodi Sundowns coach Johan Neeskens says there is no point playing mind games on Sunday when his side take on Bloemfontein Celtic in the Absa Premiership.

The meeting at the Free State Stadium comes six days before the two clubs meet again to decide the outcome of the Telkom Knockout at Durban’s Moses Mabhida Stadium.

“Everybody knows everyone in this league. They have seen us play. They can get videos to check how we pay. We can do the same about them. I think you won’t surprise them if you play one team on Sunday and then another in the final,” Neeskens told supersport.com

“If they do something similar it won’t be a surprise for us either,’ he added.

But Neeskens is expected to make changes after expressing his disappointment at his players’ attitude on Wednesday when they were held to a 1-1 draw by AmaZulu in the league, a result that left them rooted to the bottom of the table.

“My team must know that every game you play is a cup final. I’m disappointed because four days ago they went out and beat SuperSport in the Telkom with a very good attitude, commitment but I did not see the same that I saw four days ago,” he said after the midweek stalemate. “We were dominating but in the final third we were terrible with our passing, in the decisions that we took and then losing the ball in the transition to defend again. We did that very well again SuperSport but against AmaZulu I didn’t see it.”
