AJ knocking Hard on Ntseki's Door

Mamelodi Sundowns midfield ace, Andile Jali, has revived his career and is enjoying a good vein of form.

Derived from his names, AJ, is returning to his former self. The Matataile born star is slowly but surely paving his way back to Bafana Bafana. Jali gave a man of the match performance in Sundowns' last match against Golden Arrows in the Telkom Knockout semi finals on Sunday afternoon. Jali worked hard to earn a spot in the starting line up.

It is never easy to break into the match day squad at Sundowns and surely Jali has earned his spot in the team. The leaner and sharper 'Gattuso' can fit in any team like a glove to hand. In a star studded side like Sundowns- even international stars- get it difficult to make the match day team. Like many other return soldiers from Europe Jali joined Sundowns but he was not guaranteed game time.

With Tiyani Mabunda and Hlompho Kekana having formed a titles winning midlefield pairing, it wasn't going to be easy for Jali to break that partnership. Mabunda and Kekana have been playing together for quite sometime and Jali had to compete for a spot against the duo. Pitso Mosimane barely changes his line up, Mabunda and Kekana, are his tested twin sixes but with 'Gattuso' in the picture, Misimane had to come up with a plan.

'Gattuso' has been with Bafana Bafana before and he certainly wants to don national colours again. Now that he is getting minutes at his club, surely returning to Bafana is his next goal. Molefi Ntseki can't afford over looking an inform Jali.

Jali is knocking on Bafana door, is Ntseki ready to open?
