Cape Town - Highly rated Mamelodi Sundowns forward Keletso Makgalwa believes he has the attributes to match the achievements of Khama Billiat, and will strive to do so.

The 20-year-old, who hails from Limpopo and made his name in helping Downs' reserve team to win the MultiChoice Diski Challenge (MDC) earlier in 2017, says he one day he hopes to emulate arguably the club's most outstanding player.

"I and Khama play more or less the same type of football. He is at the top and I am still coming up," he told TimesLive website.

"I can be better than him at some stage. This isn't arrogance speaking but the drive of where I want to be.

"Khama is my idol and I want to achieve some of the things that he has achieved. That's why I have set myself a target of doing better than him.

"If I fall short‚ and achieve what he achieved‚ I would have done well and would be in good company."
