The wait is over - Dolezar 25/08/04
Mamelodi Sundowns coach Paul Dolezar is ecstatic after proclaiming that the wait is finally over for the Brazilians, who will play their Castle Premiership opener against Santos at Athlone Stadium next Wednesday.

The Chloorkop side's last competitive match was in the Telkom Charity Cup final, playing two friendlies during that period, beating Silver Stars 2-0 and Classic 3-1.

"Thank God, the wait is over," Dolezar said on the club's official website. "Next Wednesday, we will line-up against Santos at the Athlone Stadium for our opening league fixture of the season. I know that many Mamelodi Sundowns supporters are anxious to see how the team performs.

"We have been inactive for quite a long time and it is important to keep the rhythm going, otherwise it serves little purpose for players to train with very little action. Remember, the last time we played was during the Telkom Charity Cup."

Although, the Sundowns coach confirmed he knows which 18 players will make the trip down to Cape Town for their clash with 'The People's Team', he admitted that he is facing a major selection dilemma over who to play alongside new signing Peter Ndlovu up-front.

However, Dolezar is confident his side will kick-off their season on a good note following their lengthy lay-off and the French-Yugoslav conceded that they are aiming to secure 15 points from their first five matches.

"We have prepared accordingly and while I do not want to blow my trumpet, we would be going out to get full points in the first five games.

"The truth is that 15 points in the first five games is very crucial. It puts you in pole position and the opposition under tremendous pressure."
