Mamelodi Sundowns striker Anthony Laffor says they cannot afford to be complacent in the return leg of the CAF Champions League final against Zamalek on Sunday.
The Liberian scored the opening goal of the first leg as the Brazilians claimed an emphatic 3-0 win over the Egyptians in Tshwane on Saturday afternoon.
The return match will be held in Alexandria next Sunday and although ‘Downs hold the advantage, Laffor insists that they cannot take their foot off the pedal.
“We told ourselves before we got to this stage we needed to score more goals and that’s what happened today,” Laffor told SuperSport television cameras.
“The most important thing, I think we listened to what our coaches wanted us to do and I just want to say thanks to the guys today because we fought as a team and it’s not about the goals but how well we played, which is the most important thing.
“It’s not over yet, we need to keep our feet on the ground for our next game in Egypt but we are ahead of them in the competition. So we’ll see what happens in Egypt but to be frank with you it’s not going to be easy there and nobody tells us it’s going to be easy because we started this journey on a rocky road.
“So we just need to keep our feet on the ground, listen to what our big bosses want us to do and then when we go to Egypt, maybe we can capitalise on a mistake and get a goal from there, that will be good.
“But for now we are in a good position, we don’t need to be greedy, we just need to be humble.
“I just want to say thanks to the millions that supported us today, not only the guys who came to the stadium but people at home and all the people in yellow today who supported the team.
“I want to say thanks to all South Africans and to my family back home in Liberia, I know they watched this game today, thank you.”
