Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has come to the defence of midfielder Sibusiso Vilakazi after his lukewarm start to the Premiership season.

Vilakazi joined Sundowns at the start of the campaign in a move that also saw Mogakalodi Ngele and Cuthbert Malajila go to Bidvest Wits.

The 26-year-old has not found his best form and was among those who missed a penalty in the 3-1 shootout loss against SuperSport United in the Telkom Knockout quarter-final on Saturday.

"When you bring a new player into the team, you need to nurture them," Mosimane told KickOff.

"You need to make sure you support them and the best time to support is during days like this.

"Imagine you don't show support to Vila, then you are killing the boy.

"You need to support him and tell him we didn't buy you for one match or one year.

"We bought him for the next three to four years."
