Cape Town - SuperSport United defender Tefu Mashamaite has singled out the efforts of Mandla Masango in addition to revealing that he is making huge strides on the road to full recovery.
Masango has been a mainstay in Stuart Baxter's side since completing his loan move from Danish outfit Randers, and Mashamaite hopes that the club can secure the services of the former Kaizer Chiefs winger on a permanent basis.
"We know what Mandla can offer to the team," he told Goal.com website.
"It's up to the coach, whether they are going to sign him permanently or not. He is a young an exciting boy."
The 2015 Premiership Player of the Season also stressed that he is not worried about the lack of game-time as he is nearing full recovery from a knee injury.
"No, I am not worried. I have just recovered from an injury," he added.
"I played in the CAF game against the Madagascan team and you have to learn how to walk first before you can fly.
"So, I am not in a rush. I know I am fit enough to do the job if the coach decides that I need to get out there."
