Mosimane: Sundowns won't underestimate VUT

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane says he will not look past their Nedbank Cup last-16 opponents Vaal University of Technology (VUT).

The Brazilians are overwhelming favourites to beat VUT, who compete in the fourth tier of South African football - the SAB Regional League, but Mosimane has warned against complacency.

"You can't get to the second round of this tournament and have nothing to offer. You can't beat Golden Arrows and not have something," Mosimane said, as quoted by Sowetan Live.

"I went to watch them play last week and they are a good team. I was anxious to see how does a team in the SAB League eliminate a Premiership team."

Mosimane went on to say that coach Standford Nkoane and his VUT outfit reminds him of his early coaching days.

"It reminds me of when I started coaching. I started coaching at a school in Soweto, not even the SAB League. This cup has so many good stories," the Masandawana boss added.

"I played for a team called Rockville Hungry Lions and once got beaten by Pirates by eight goals. So the minute you underestimate them you are being disrespectful."

Sundowns will face VUT at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Sunday at 15h00.
