Mamelodi Sundowns lifted their seventh PSL title after beating AmaTuks in the Tshwane Derby on Wednesday night.
Coach Pitso Mosimane believes the Brazilians fully deserve winning the Absa Premiership title.
The Chloorkop club clinched their second championship crown in three years and also extended their overall count to seven after thumping University of Pretoria on Wednesday.
Sundowns now have an unassailable lead at the summit, winning the title from Bidvest Wits with two games to play of the 2015/16 season.
“We’ve come a long way,” Mosimane said. “When you score 53 goals after 28 games and lose only three games as of now and go 20 games on an unbeaten run, I think you deserve the trophy.
“We worked hard to do match analysis. If you do that you should be able to lift the trophy.”
Mosimane, who has been at the helm at Sundowns since 2012, has now set his sights on years of dominance with the club.
“It’s very important for the club that we’ve now won the title seven times, but I think we must go on and break the record and win it 10 times,” he added.
“I’m proud to be coach of these boys. I have support from the players, the supporters and the club’s board.
“We caught the big fish. I told you last year I knew the security code and where to fetch the big fish, and we delivered.”
Mosimane and his players will be presented with the trophy by the Premier Soccer League (PSL) at the Lucas Moripe Stadium in Atteridgeville following their match against Platinum Stars on the May 21, which is the final day of the season.
