Cape Town - Mamelodi
Sundowns midfielder Teko Modise has called on the club's senior players to help
the new arrivals settle ahead of the new campaign.

The Brazilians have already begun strengthening their
options and will see new signing Keagan Dolly arrive from Ajax Cape Town next
month while Mogakolodi Ngele will return from loan at Platinum Stars.
The pair are just two of numerous new faces expected to head
to Chloorkop, while captain and experienced defender Alje Schut will depart in
the off-season, and Modise believes it is up to Sundowns' veteran members to
make the new signings feel at home.
“I think first of all we need to find a proper balance because
Alje Schut won't be there,” said Modise.
“Alje was very important to the team, scoring goals and
defending well so that's one aspect we really, really need to work on.
“We need to bring fresh legs in other departments. It will
be good to see young players come through and we will try to do our best as
senior players to help them adjust.
“No matter how
talented you are, it is different in a new environment so we need to help them.”
