Fresh from their Caf Champions League assignment in Algeria, the Brazilians will now turn focus on the PSL this weekend
Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Denis Onyango admits being away from his family has been difficult as the team had a hectic fixture schedule during the month of December.
The Brazilians visited North Africa twice in the same month while they also played two domestic matches in Durban before hosting Polokwane City in Tshwane.
They now return to Durban to play AmaZulu in the league this coming Saturday.
With that tight travelling schedule, Sundowns spent Christmas Day in Algeria and Onyango wants to justify that busy time with positive results.
