Cape Town - "No man is an island. I could never have done it without the support."

Those were Pitso Mosimane's words after Mamelodi Sundowns secured their ninth Absa Premiership title following a narrow 1-0 win against Free State Stars on Saturday.

Lining-up alongside his technical staff during the post-match interview, the 54-year-old mentor praised their input as the season went down to the last day.

When all was said and done, Sundowns edged Orlando Pirates by two points in a title race that kept fans on the edge of their seats.

It has been a roller-coaster and nail-biting season as drama unfolded not only on the pitch, but off it as well.

Leading up to the final game of the season, Mosimane was quoted as saying it has been an "emotional" campaign for many reasons.

Early in the season, Mosimane was found guilty by the PSL of violent conduct for punching an AmaZulu security official.

Following a 3-3 stalemate against the KwaZulu-Natal outfit, Sundowns fans were seen having an argument with the official. Mosimane soon got involved in the fracas and was accused of throwing punches.
