What Does Sundowns' Pursuit Of Lakay Mean For Ngoma, Lebese And Co?

Mamelodi Sundowns are believed to be on the verge of completing a deal to bring Cape Town City’s Lyle Lakay on board, however, what does it mean for the rest of their left wingers? 

Sundowns currently have Aubrey Ngoma, George Lebese and Themba Zwane who are of service to the team in the left wing department.

Zwane’s versatility has been utilised often by Head Coach Mosimane, able to play on both the right and left wing and in the attacking midfield role.

Ngoma, on the other hand, is a natural left winger, having been influential to City’s attack in the 2016/17 campaign, however, the 28-year-old made just five appearances for Sundowns since joining in January 2018, yet to play the full 90 minutes for the Brazilians.

Lebese has also seen very little game-time in the 2017/18 season, making just 15 appearances in the entire campaign. However, Mosimane also utilises the player in the left wing or left midfield department, a clear indication that the Brazilians are spoilt for choice.

With Lakay expected to make the move to Sundowns, there have been questions raised about the player getting in regular game-time, as well as in which position he will be utilised, as he is able to play both on the left and right, although naturally a left winger. 

Despite the move yet to be finalised, it remains to be seen what the addition of Lakay would mean to the Sundowns side and the impact on Ngoma and Lebese, who are both struggling for game-time at the Brazilians.
