Why Silva Is Yet To Make His Sundowns Debut

Mamelodi Sundowns’ new signing, Toni Silva, is yet to make his first appearance for the Brazilians and Siya sources have since revealed the reason for his absence.

Sundowns completed the signing of Silva as free agent on July 01, though the player has not been included in any of Coach Pitso Mosimane’s match-day squads to date.

According to sources, the player is not match-fit and is facing a challenging time in raising his fitness levels to the team's level, taking into consideration that he last played a competitive match in November last year for his former side, APO Levadiakos.

The Brazilians will return to Mzansi thereafter where they will return to Absa Premiership action against Highlands Park on August 22, and it remains to be seen whether Silva will be fit in time to make his official debut for the club.
