Mamelodi Sundowns coach suggests interest in Mahlambi


Pitso Mosimane has hinted that his side may be interested in obtaining the services of Al Ahly’s attacking midfielder .

Upon joining the club, Mahlambi appeared to be among the brightest prospects in African football after winning the South African league title in 2016-17 with Bidvest Wits.

However, the 20 year old has failed to make a real impact in Cairo having only made just 15 appearances for Al Ahly since joining last summer, in which time he has scored just one goal despite picking up five assists.

Mahlambi is now being offered an escape route from Egypt, with Mamelodi Sundowns seemingly interested in the attacking midfielder who should take no time to settle as he is a South African international.

The suspicions of Mahlambi moving to Sundowns arose due to Mosimane’s comments, in which he said “There’s a 20-year-old that I am fighting to get. Hopefully I can get [him]. He’s not here [in the PSL]. That’s the future, so we need to bring the future to Sundowns.”

“We should not only be looking at the senior players. There’s two Under-23s that I also want. But the challenge is that they must also be ready to play. But I think I can get it right in a year or two.”

Mamelodi Sundowns have started their campaign in disappointing fashion, as they are bottom of a group containing Wydad Casablanca, Horoya and Togo-Port with the Pretoria based club currently winless after three games, although there are still three more games remaining to salvage their place in the knockout stage.
