Cape Town - With his club back in the CAF Champions League, Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane admits it is going to be difficult to release Keagan Dolly for the Rio Olympics in August.

Dolly has had an exceptional campaign with the Brazilians, as he feature in every single match for the Chloorkop outfit this season.

The 23-year-old is expected to lead the SA under-23 side as captain in Brazil and Mosimane insists they, together with the under-23 coach Owen Da Gama, will have to sit down and come up with a plan on how to utilise the former Ajax Cape Town winger.

"I don’t want to lose Keagan to the Olympics but also I don’t want Keagan not to play against Zamalek," Mosimane told KickOff.

"I don’t want Keagan not to play against Setif in Algeria. We will see, we will speak to Owen (SA U-23 coach Da Gama) and also let's see how it goes.

"The country is also important," added Mosimane.

"I have been with Bafana. I had players taken from me at the airport and I don’t forget that pain. I don’t forget that pain, it was a sharp knife in my heart."
