Mamelodi Sundowns head coach, Pitso Mosimane is patient in his wait to have his squad finally gel.
The Brazilians have made several signings for the 2018/19 campaign, securing several of their transfer targets that have been reported on over the past months and weeks by the Siya crew.
However, Sundowns are yet to find their feet in the current campaign, having recently been knocked out of both the CAF Champions League and the MTN8 competitions.
However, Mosimane is confident that once his new signings settle in, the team will eventually click.
“Let’s wait for the team to settle. Let’s wait for the combination of Ali Meza and Toni Silva to settle. Let me incorporate Lebogang Maboe in this programme. Phakamani Mahlambi also still needs to come in. Mosa Lebusa played well against Cape Town City. I am not coaching for tomorrow, one match. I am here for the long haul,” Mosimane said on Sundowns’ official website.
Here are Sundowns’ new signings and how they have fared since their arrival so far:
Andile Jali: No Absa Premiership appearances as yet, featured in the once in the quarter-finals of the MTN8 competition, made two 90-minute appearances in the Brazilians’ CAF Champions League campaign.
