Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Denis Onyango admits the fans are right to be frustrated after a string of poor results but says this is a wakeup call.

The outgoing African champions lie 10th on the PSL logo, are out of the CAF Champions League and were also knocked out of the MTN8 competition.

They have lost three of their past six league games and after loss to Amazulu, fans refused to applaud them.

“They [the supporters] are very disappointed with us,” Onyango told Kickoff. “We know that they are disappointed because we saw their reaction after the game against Amazulu,” he added.

We are trying our best to get back to winning ways.

The Uganda Cranes number one reminded them of two seasons ago when they lost to Ajax and in a similar manner, fans refused to applaud them but went on to win the league that season.

We’ve seen this before. I remember that season (2015/2016) when we played Ajax and fans were not happy with us. But we managed to win the league that season. I think this is a wake up call for everyone. We understand their frustration and we are trying our best to get the team into the right shape.

Onyango and Sundowns’ realistic chance to lift silverware this season remains in the Telkom Knockout competition.
