Mamelodi Sundowns defender Thapelo Morena is delighted to be back in action this season and enjoying the club's success on the pitch.

The 27-year-old suffered a season-ending leg injury just over a year ago but is now back in the swing of things having made 18 appearances for the Brazilians in all competitions this term.

Morena is glad to be back at full fitness this season and is relishing the team's position at the top of the DStv Premiership standings.

"It's a great feeling to be back," Morena told the club's media team.

"We have worked very hard on our games. I need to give everyone credit for the work because we have never started a season like this. It is all about teamwork and we have been doing that well, it is great to see the hard work paying off.

"One thing we have to know is that whenever you want to achieve you need to sustain pressure. Pressure needs to be your friend. The good thing is that we always just take one game at a time.

"The thing is that when we chase, we don't have the points in the bag we have to fight more and more so sitting on top is better.

"It's also difficult because we know everyone coming to face us will want to fight and will try to play us on the counter."
