With Sibusiso Vilakazi back scoring again, his Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane seems to be breathing a little bit easier.
It’s no secret that the Brazilians made several attempts during the January transfer window to bring in a striker, with Gift Motupa and Knowledge Musona both targets, but the club couldn’t land either of them at the time.
But Vilakazi appears to have taken up the responsibility, scoring in four successive matches for Sundowns to close in our double figures for the season in all competitions.
The coach countered a cheeky question posed to him about whether a striker remained top of his wishlist by pointing to Vilakazi’s current streak.
“What are we going to do? We are using Vila and he’s scoring. What can I say? The guy is scoring every week. So that is our striker and maybe sometimes Lebo (Maboe), I don’t know. My other striker (Mauricio Affonso) is injured,” Mosimane replied.
“But as long as we score and we win. Don’t look for something to write – you have a lot of stories to write.”
