Cape Town - New Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Lucky Mohomi insists that his move to Chloorkop came at the right time.

Mohomi has refuted the suggestions by some that he needed more development as a footballer at Free State Stars before signing a three-year deal with Sundowns.

The 25 year-old is ready for the challenge at the defending Premiership champions, where competition for starting places is tough.

"I don't think I moved too early. I felt it was time to move. I learned a lot during my first season. I quickly adjusted to the style and pressures in the PSL," Mohomi told the Sowetan Live.

"So I think I will continue from where I left off at Stars. I know competition will be high at Sundowns. The reason I signed is because I am not scared of challenges. I will make my mark.

"There are quality players and I will work hard. I am sure I will improve more than Bongani Zungu did under Pitso's guidance.

"It was difficult to choose Sundowns over Pirates because every player wants to play in the Soweto derby. My mom wanted me to go to Pirates, but we decided that this is where I should go."
