Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies team captain, Agnes Nkosi, continues to use her leadership skills to inspire her teammates, as the club aims to defend their SAFA National Women’s League title and prepare for continental participation.

On Monday, 4 January 2021, Sundowns returned to training under the guidance of head coach Jerry Tshabalala, who put the ladies through their paces to keep them in tip top shape.

Speaking on return, Nkosi expressed her views via the team’s Twitter account, saying:

“As the Captain of the team, one of the things I’ve learnt is being an example by word & deed, not only for myself but for the team & whilst at it, go an extra mile for my teammates.” – Agnes Nkosi, Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies team captain


After a gruesome season without a loss or a draw, Nkosi led the team to earn a spot at the CAF Women Champions League.

The Ladies side are currently living up to management’s plans and the legacy of their male counterparts which is to make Mamelodi Sundowns club a formidable football force on the African continent.

The team will be competing against the best teams in the inaugural Women’s Caf Champions League this year.

The commencement date of the first ever competition is yet to be confirmed, but the Confederation of African Football insists that the league will without a doubt start in 2021, with 10 to 15 clubs from several countries.
