Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has given high praise to the performances of Mosa Lebusa this season, saying the defender should be called up to the national team.

Lebusa has been a regular for Masandawana so far this campaign and besides his efforts at the heart of the defence, the 26-year-old has also chipped in with three goals.

Mosimane believes his player is competing with Bafana Bafana regulars Buhle Mkhwanazi and Thulani 'Tyson' Hlatshwayo for a spot in the Bafana squad.

The Sundowns mentor told reporters: "Mosa Lebusa, I think he competes with Tyson in Bafana, he competes with Buhle.

"He scores goals, stable, he is not slow, and he brings the balls up and brings them back, I mean with the headers.

"He never panics, and he passes well. He has got the right age."

Mosimane also feels playing in the CAF Champions League in difficult away fixtures is no different to playing at national level.

"We bring these players because (we) tell them that when they come to us, they will win trophies," Mosimane added.

"Same as Rivaldo (Coetzee), Lebo (Maboe), Phakamani (Mahlambi).

"We have given them that, they have won trophies with us and they know how it is to play in the Champions League. It’s the same as playing a Bafana game, no difference."
