Cape Town - Kudakwashe ‘Kuda’ Mahachi admits that his AS Monaco trial was a great experience but now he is solely focusing on adjusting to life at Mamelodi Sundowns.

According to KickOff Magazine, Mahachi reveals that he just wants to improve on his game and become a regular for the Chloorkop club since his return from France.

“This is my first year in the PSL; I need to adjust and work hard to get into the team on a regular basis,” said Kuda.

“I don’t think settling into this league will be difficult. PSL defenders are good, but they are too slow. The pace here is not fast as in Zimbabwe.”

After his ten day trial with Monaco, the former Highlanders FC midfielder reveals that Manchester United striker, Radamel Falcao, urged him frequently during the training sessions prior to his transfer deadline day move to Old Trafford.

“Falcao is the one who was always encouraging me, and I learned a lot from all those guys.

“You might see them as famous footballers, who are playing in the UEFA Champions League, but they are true professional and they take their careers very seriously,” added the 21-year-old.

Meanwhile Sundowns return to Absa Premiership action when they face Kaizer Chiefs at the FNB Stadium on Saturday, November 22.

Kick-off is at 15:30.
