After spending over a year at Mamelodi Sundowns, Lyle Lakay has revealed what the difference is compared to playing for other clubs.

“Obviously (the difference is) the pressure. There’s pressure everywhere, but here it’s a bit more. We live a different life to other people and other teams. Your lifestyle is important, because we have a different schedule to other teams because of CAF (Champions League),” Lakay said in an exclusive interview with Soccer Laduma.

“We travel more and, as a player, you see your teammates more than your family. At the end of the day, when you come here, you need to tell yourself that you need to buy into the vision and when you buy into it, you will become successful. If you don’t buy into it, then you are wasting your time,” he added.
