Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns forward Lebohang Maboe
believes Pitso Mosimane deserves credit for the good form he is showing for the
Brazilians in 2018/19.

Maritzburg United, Maboe has established himself as a starter under Mosimane
and has scored two goals in nine Absa Premiership appearances.
He has been rewarded for his form by becoming a regular
selection for Bafana Bafana by coach Stuart Baxter.
Nonetheless, the 24-year-old says he is playing with plenty
of confidence as his coach at Sundowns encourages him to play with freedom and
He said: "It's the confidence that the coach gives me.
He tells me to go out there and express myself and that's what I do.
"I just go out there and express myself and I do
whatever it is I want to do with the ball. So, I'd say it's the confidence that
the coach gives me.
Regarding his international career, he added: "I just
have to be consistent and keep doing what I have been doing and hopefully I
will keep my place in the national team. I'd like to make the team that will be
in the AFCON next year (in Cameroon)."
Maboe could start for Bafana in Saturday's crucial Africa
Cup of Nations Group E qualifier against Nigeria at the FNB Stadium in
