Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has praised Cuthbert Malajila's contribution to the team this season over and above his goals.

He believes he could have already scored more than 10 league goals this season if he had been a bit more selfish, but is grateful of the striker's team ethic.

The Zimbabwean forward has scored 10 league goals so far this season and is one strike behind the leaders Moeketsi Sekola of Free State Stars and Bloemfontein Celtic's Lerato Lamola.

"The one thing you may not be aware of is that Mala has 10 assists," Mosimane said.

"It is easy to score 10 goals when you are waiting there and to be passed the ball to score.

"Mala is not selfish and he could have scored some of the goals that he passed. He plays for the team.

"He also tracks back and defends. So he is not like other strikers who just wait there to be passed the ball and score."
