Cape Town - South Africa Under-23 manager Owen Da Gama has credited Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane for the meteoric rise of Keagan Dolly.

The Sundowns playmaker has been in stupendous form this term and will spearhead the national team at the Rio Olympics.

Dolly has played an integral role for Mosimane's side, forming part of the lethal trio dubbed 'CBD' with Leonardo Castro and Khama Billiat.

In his first season at the club, the 23-year-old has contributed nine goals and six assists.

"I've always said, any player that does well in the PSL, credit must go his coach, definitely, and I've always said it," Da Gama told KickOff.

"I tell the players, the guys who've got good coaches, come and do exactly what you did there and come and do the same thing here.

"I think that also helped him at Sundowns, by being given that international experience and confidence. So we are quite happy that we helped the players with their clubs and clubs helped the players for the under-23s."
