CAF Champions League

Lebusa’s First Words In CAF Squad

Mosa Lebusa has spoken ahead of Mamelodi Sundowns’ first CAF Champions League game in the new campaign, with the player in contention to make his debut in the competition.

The Brazilians have travelled away to Equatorial Guinea, where they will come up against Leones Vegetarianos in the preliminary round of the CAF Champions League competition.

Speaking ahead of the clash, Lebusa revealed that he is looking forward to the encounter, aware that being mentally strong will play a big role in their campaign. 

“It’s very exciting; I am looking forward to it. It’s not easy to play in the Champions League; you have to be strong physically and mentally so I’m looking forward to it,” Lebusa told the media. 

“I’ve watched a couple of games from Sundowns (Champions League) and could see that they play different teams from different leagues so obviously their mentality is different than how we play back at home so I think you have to be mentally strong than anything else, the travelling also plays a big part. 

“The coach has been trying so hard for us to bring back the old style of Sundowns, training during the international break and I think we worked really hard on that. 

“He is trying so hard for us to understand, even the new guys who got into the team, to understand the style of play,” he added.
