Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns defender Wayne Arendse has claimed that new team-mate Lyle Lakay is capable of becoming the next Keagan Dolly at Chloorkop.

Dolly left Sundowns for Montpellier in January 2017, but according to Arendse, Masandawana have signed a player from Cape Town City who can fill the void he left on the left flank.

"For sure, he [Lakay] just needs to bring that same game and the same work rate he was having at City and then he will fit in very well," the 33-year-old told Kick Off.

"He is another exciting and attacking left-footer, which is a rare commodity in teams in the Absa Premiership.

"Everyone saw how and the type of football we can play when we had a player like Dolly on the left flank.

"If he remains focused and fit I don't see why he cannot play the same role, you know."

Lakay starred for Sundowns in the inaugural Shell Helix Ultra Cup, helping them to a 2-1 victory over Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday.

He was hailed by coach Pitso Mosimane for his versatility after signing, and wherever on the park he plays, he will be hoping to play a key role in helping Masandawana defend their Premiership title this season.
