Coach Pitso Mosimane says Mamelodi Sundowns' goal is still to fight for the treble this season.

The reigning ABSA Premiership champions headed into the enforced break in second place, just four points behind leaders Kaizer Chiefs and having played a game less.

There is no indication yet if the 2019/20 PSL season will be able resume, but the Brazilians have a lot to fight for if it does.

Mosimane's side are in the semifinals of the Nedbank Cup and have already claimed this season's Telkom Knockout.

The Downs boss told IOL: "We are already in the semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup and then you say, 'can we win the league?' Yes, we can, why not? We've won the Telkom Knockout.

"If we can win the Telkom, why don't we believe that we can win the Nedbank? It is the same way, you have to find your way through. If you believe, you can do it."

He added: "Yes, we want to win the treble. I believe 2016 was a big year for Sundowns. We won the Telkom Knockout, we won the league and we went on to win the CAF Champions League. That's the big treble.

"Then there was this opportunity for this treble again. Orlando Pirates did a double-treble, but you don't want to compare. At the end of the day, a treble is a treble; ours included a continental title.

"We've got to work for it. It is not easy, but if you are going to focus on it, you may end up losing everything."
