Mamelodi Sundowns’ new signing Thapelo Morena has not travelled with the squad ahead of the Brazilians’ last CAF Champions League group encounter in Nigeria.
Masandawana announced their fourth signing of the season on Thursday, which saw former the former Bloemfontein Celtic midfielder join up with Sibusiso Vilakazi, Ricardo Nascimento and Lucky Mohomi ahead of the current PSL champions’ 2016/17 campaign.
The Brazilians then jetted off to Nigeria on Saturday as they are set to face Enyimba in their final group encounter of the CAF Champions League. The game is scheduled to take place today, 23 August, at the Enyimba International Stadium at 17:30.
Sundowns revealed last week that it was up to the coach to decide whether Morena will be registered in time to be part of the Brazilians’ 18-man squad.
However, the latest news reaching the Siya crew is that Morena will not be part of Mosimane’s bench tonight, and with Dolly’s absence due to injury, it remains to be seen how Sundowns will line-up to face Enyimba.
