Masalesa put in a stellar performance against Chiefs, which landed the Bucs midfielder the Man-of-the-Match award in the 1-0 win over Stuart Baxter's side.

“Viera has been fantastic in the game last couple of games for us. He looks like he has been playing professional football for many years, but he is only 21. He is definitely one for the future,” De Sa told the Siya crew.

With Andile Jali returning to full fitness, it remains to be seen if the 21-year-old Turfloop-born midfielder will start more games for Pirates or if he will once again be relegated to the bench.

Jali is expected to retain his place in the Bucs starting eleven when Pirates play Zamalek in the CAF Champions League on Sunday.
