Stellenbosch FC midfielder Mpho Matsi is looking forward to
a battle with Mamelodi Sundowns' Andile Jali in the middle of the park when the teams
square off in an Absa Premiership clash on Wednesday.
Matsi and Jali were teammates for an exciting Pretoria
University side that made it all the way to the Nedbank Cup final in 2009.
Jali was snapped up by Orlando Pirates after that season
while Matsi stayed on at the club before joining Mpumalanga Black Aces in 2015.
Both have since moved on to different clubs and will be key
players when Stellenbosch and Sundowns meet in a vital encounter at the Athlone
Matsi said in quotes published on the SowetanLIVE website:
"It's a challenge that will be exciting and interesting.
"As a footballer, you always want to test yourself and
Andile is, without doubt, one of the top midfielders in the country.
"I will have to be at my best on the night and do as
much as I can.
"Of course, they have a star-studded team and have many
other quality players who we will have to be careful of."
Kick-off is at 19:30.
