The defending African champions will again be the team to beat heading into the 2017-18 campaign, despite failing to defend their Absa Premiership crown last season.
Pitso Mosimane's men accumulated a whopping 71 points (22 wins, five draws, three defeats) in 30 league fixtures on their way to lifting the 2016-17 league title, but a lack of form towards the back end of the previous campaign saw the Chloorkop-based side surrender their title to Bidvest Wits.
The Brazilians have won South Africa's top tier title a record seven times since 1996; making them the most successful team in the Premier Soccer League era nonetheless.
Victory in the 2016 CAF Champions League, though, will never be forgotten with Pitso Mosimane's troops becoming only the second South African side to add a star to their crest.
Sundowns have enjoyed considerable success since 'Jingles' appointment in December 2012, with the former Bafana Bafana mentor safely leading the club clear of the relegation zone before going on to win the Absa Premiership title in his first full season in charge of the club.
The Brazilians have since added the Nedbank Cup, two Absa Premiership, TKO title, CAF Champions League and CAF Super Cup to their trophy cabinet as they firmly aim to establish themselves as the best team of the African content, as per owner Patrice Motsepe's request.
Sundowns first priority lies on home soil with ‘Jingles’ eager to see his side get their domestic season off to a good start, hoping that success in the MTN8 will spark an uncontrollable flame which will sweep up all the trophies on offer, ending with the club reclaiming their league title , with the dream of continental domination.
Still boasting the bulk of the squad that came up trumps in the CAF Champions League, Mosimane will be confident that a season full of silverware lies in store once more.
