Dolly’s Form A Worry For Downs?

Many of our beloved Mamelodi Sundowns fans were delighted when the announcement was made that the club had signed Ajax Cape Town star Keagan Dolly at the start of the Premier Soccer League season.

He fits the bill of what is required to play at a club like Sundowns. He is quick with the technical ability to match. Importantly though, he is someone comfortable in possession, which indicates that he has the ability to fit in with the carpet style football we play.

This season though, Dolly seems to look a shadow of the player who was named the best young player in the country last season. Is this a cause for concern for Downs?

It could be, because there is every chance of the youngster carrying this dull form into next season when he links up with the club after his loan spell at the Urban Warriors.

No doubt the club would want to make use of the player, as he is tipped to become a big player in South African football in years to come, but taking into consideration his current form, the Downs technical team may have second guesses in that regard.

We need to also take into account that he was injured for the better part of the season and that may have hindered his progress this season. Also, coach Roger De Sa switched Dolly from the left wing to a more central role, and he could be taking time to adjust to his change in position.

He is player with tremendous potential, but moving to Downs at a time where competition for places in the team are rife, coupled with the fact that he may not be at his best, may be detrimental to his career going forward.

Is Dolly’s form a worry for Downs?
