Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Tiyani Mabunda has cited coach Pitso Mosimane's role in his improved game-time and has also vowed to continue to work hard.

The former Black Leopards man appeared to have fallen out of favour at the Chloorkop-based outfit after only making seven appearances in the 2015/16 Absa Premiership season.

Speaking to Soccer Laduma, the 28-year-old highlighted Mosimane's role in his resurgence following his crucial away goal against Zamalek in the CAF Champions League

"I am happy that I am having game time. I owe all this to coach Pitso," he said. "Coach Pitso has improved my game.

"It’s because he believed in me that he gave me my second chance and now I am enjoying my game and I will continue working hard to keep on improving my game," Mabunda concluded.

Sundowns host Zamalek on Wednesday, 27 July at the Lucas Masterpieces Moripe Stadium in their final CAF Champions League group fixture, where a victory will all but secure a semi-final berth.
