Mamelodi Sundowns forward Sibusiso Vilakazi is excited about the prospect of clinching three domestic titles this season.

Masandawana have already lifted the Telkom Knockout trophy and remain in contention for both the Absa Premiership and the Nedbank Cup.

"We like the challenge and the competition. We are a team that's driven by success. At this point, we don't have time to squander chances of winning trophies, so why not win both the league and the Nedbank Cup? At the end of the season we must have something to be proud of," Vilakazi said, as quoted by SowetanLive.

"We're like a child who keeps on getting A grades at school, when he gets a B, it's not good enough. Those high expectations come with pressure and we enjoy it. Winning three trophies in one season is in line with what a club like us stands for."

Asked about the upcoming cup game against Highlands Park on Sunday, Vila added: "It's a crucial game for us. I think it'll be that one game where just one opportunity decides everything. We have to be more clinical."

On a personal note, Vilakazi revealed that he is enjoying Sundowns' success and believes it's more important than chasing his own targets in terms of goal-scoring.

"It doesn't matter who scores, as long as the team is winning. We always have that brotherhood," he added.

"You must just play your part in the team, contribute as much as you can. Whoever is in a good position to score, you pass to him because it's all about sharing."
