Yesterday, the club announced it had promoted young Malebogo Modise to the first team and he joins a star studded team, but the coach believes it is the “right time to bring him in” and that he will fit in at Chloorkop.

“He's got speed, he's got height. He loves to play by going up and down the sides. He plays centre-back also because if you play centre-back it means you know how to defend. If you play left-back it means you also know how to defend and it means you know how to attack,” Mosimane said of the 21-year-old who is nicknamed ‘Bale’ after the Real Madrid and Welsh international Gareth Bale.

“The quality and the characteristics of our full backs at Sundowns is Tebogo Langerman, Thapelo Morena, those are the characteristics, Lyle Lakay, those full-backs who overlap. So Bale fits in that space. He is young, he's played in the under-20 at the World Cup and under-23, and he' been part of the under-17 World Cup also. So it's the right time to bring him over.”
